Roast Chicken and Root Vegetables

June 9, 2020


When it comes to chicken, there are so many different ways you can fix it. On this week's "Cooking with Annie," she shows us one way by roasting and adding some vegetables.


1 (4 1/2 pound) whole chicken

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon kosher salt (plus extra for the vegetables)

several grinds fresh black pepper (plus extra for the vegetables)

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1 large onion, cut into 1-inch chunks

2 large parsnips, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices

3 large carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices (or 3 cups baby carrots)

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


Preheat oven to 400°F. Rub the chicken outside and inside with the paprika, salt, and pepper and place on a roasting pan with the onion, parsnips, and carrots. Drizzle the vegetables with the oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 1 1/2 hours or until the legs feel loose in the joint and the vegetables are tender. Transfer the chicken to a serving platter. Whisk the mustard into the pan to make a pan sauce, adding a little water if needed to loosen the sticky bits on the bottom of the pan. Serve with mashed potatoes.


Lemon Garlic Chicken

Follow the instructions above and stuff the chicken with one whole lemon cut in half and two heads of garlic. If butterflied, place the chicken on top of the lemon and garlic, then roast.

5-Herb Chicken

Follow the instructions above and add 2 teaspoons Herbs de Provence to the paprika, salt, and pepper.

Serves 4 to 6
