Hello everyone!! We are finally back home after 3 beautiful, but very cold, weeks in Canada. OMG! It is soooo cold in Canada during this time of the year. Cannot describe how it feels -40C..yes! we had this shocking temperature one morning in Ottawa..I was just frozen, I though my face will break into pieces. But, apart from the cold, I just love Canada! I absolutely adore it during the summer 🙂
Now, back to my recipe (…it has been a while since I haven’t posted one) I made Roasted Chicken with oranges, olives and parsley.
There is nothing better than a citrus roasted chicken on a sunny, cold winter day. It just warms up my day and reminds me that winter won’t last forever 🙂 Not to mention how crazy simple and easy is to make it and totally delicious. In less than 1 hour, you’ll have this homemade dinner ready to be served and will cost you under $15.
I served the roasted chicken with oranges, olives and parsley with sweet potato chips, but you cn choose mash potatoes, or even rice. A big old pitcher with Sangria would go perfectly with it…Hmm, why didn’t I think of it earlier?
Hope you’ll enjoy it!
