Roasted Chicken Recipe For Winter
It’s been snowy for more than two weeks, which makes us crave for soup and oven dishes more. Oh and of course for green tea, sage tea and salep! When it first snew this year, we rushed out even it was night time to feel the star shape snow on our face after a long summer and fall time.
We couldn’t wait more for playing snowball. It wasn’t only two of us who were joyous because of snow. Lots of people were out enjoying themselves with snow, they were playing snowball, making snowman, walking and even lying on snow.
We have already got used to living with snow and it’s not very likely to see people outside playing with snow these days. People are trying to escape from snow anow and they are rushing into their homes to have a cup of hot drink. It looks like they are bored of snow and they start to wait for sunny spring days! This is human nature, isn’t it?
This roasted chicken and veggies was made on such a snowy weekend. We love to cook inside when it’s rainy or snowy outside! This fantastic dish came out with what we had in the refrigerator. We had it with a large bowl of green salad.
We mainly use potatoes and carrots, but you can replace these veggies with what you like.
