French Fridays Roast Chicken for Les Paresseux
Today is French Fridays with Dorie where I among other members of Dorie’s cooking club post photos of a recipe that we created from her book. This month we have 4 recipes to prepare where we choose which ones to fix each week. This week I made the Roast Chicken for Les Paresseux.
Les Paresseux are lazy people, and this is a recipe perfect for them – and the rest of us too – because once you put the chicken in the oven, you’ve got nothing more to do but pull it out when the timer buzzes ninety minutes or so later.
The recipe is so simple to prepare. Although I’m not allowed to share the recipe it’s just basically a whole chicken with various veggies and liquid that roast for 90 minutes with a special treat set beneath the chicken as it roasts. YUM!
This is something I could see preparing on a weekly basis especially when time is of the essence and I have other things to do besides stand in front of the stove for two hours.
This recipe along with the one I posted last Friday for Marie-Helene’s Apple Cake are from Dorie Greenspans book Around My French Table. The book is stunning with beautiful photos and more than 300 recipes. You owe it to yourself to check out the book or purchase it from Amazon or your local bookstore. The recipes all appear to be user friendly with incredible results.
Next Friday, I’m not sure which recipe I’ll select but I’m certain it will taste as good if not better than the others I’ve tried.
Oh and by the way, feel free to join the cooking club as well. There are no fees or requirements other than purchasing the book to get the recipes. The best part is you meet new foodies, share ideas, and learn lots of great french recipes. You have nothing to lose!
