The pioneer woman roast chicken

The Pioneer Woman Roast Chicken is one of my favorite dinner recipes.  It turns out so moist every time.  The Pioneer Woman is my idol when it comes to cooking.  I love her sense of cooking and she has a big family to cater too and so do I with my boys. Her recipe for Roast Chicken is perfect because you only need 5 ingredients! I know some people are afraid of making a Roast Chicken but her recipe makes it very simple and every time I make my chicken it comes out perfect!  I love to freeze this recipe too and use it for shredded chicken recipes.

This time when making the roast chicken I used dried Rosemary instead of fresh, but it still was amazing!

I like to serve Roast Chicken with corn and fried taters and Cinnamon Sugar Biscuits.
