Imagine this tasty roasted chicken sitting at the center of your dinner table, just out of the oven, perfuming the room with its porto and herbs scent… This roasted chicken is simple and easy to do with these little olives and herbs which adds a subtle touch to this refined dish. What is great with this kind of dish is that it is not only very good, but in addition, there are not many dishes to clean afterwards.
I just love cooking in the oven, I hope you do too!
