Chicken, chicken, chicken…
It’s an all-time favorite all-year-round! It’s the one thing everyone in my family will eat without too much ado! I am sure many other families are similar.
Far be it from me to disappoint!
Besides, you may think of fall when you hear pot roast, but using a chicken and some tasty herbs turns this into a dish that works well for spring and summer too.
Use some of the leftovers to make soup the next day, or turn the leftover chicken into chicken salad.
