Roast Chicken Italiano


Roast Chicken


ROASTED TO PERFECTION

There's nothing better tasting than Roast Chicken Italiano for your family. The combination of fresh herbs and spices make this chicken recipe one of a kind.

I love serving this dish with roasted red potatoes,celery, and pearl onions. I also end up making two chickens at a time to make sure there are leftovers.

This recipe for Roast Chicken Italiano can also be used for rock cornish hens. Four Cornish hens arranged on a platter with a mixture of fresh vegetables makes a wonderful presentation for the dining table.
