Roasted Chicken With Vegetables

This recipe is one I love to do on Sundays. Today is a rainy day and this recipe is perfect for a day like today. The aroma of this dish going through the house just brings a warm, cozy feeling inside and out. After dinner, it will be a good time to just cover yourself with a blanket and read a good book until bedtime.

Non-stick cooking spray
One whole chicken, degutted
One large onion, peeled, rinsed and chopped
6 medium potatoes, peeled, rinsed and quartered
4 carrots, peeled, rinsed and cut in 2 inch parts lengthwise
5 stacks celery, rinsed and cut in 2 inch parts lengthwise
1 tsp. Season Salt
1/4 teaspoon Thyme

Spray roasting pan with non-stick cooking spray. Place chicken inside roaster. Spray Chicken liberally with non-stick cooking spray. Mix seasonings together in cup and then rub onto chicken. Put 1/2 of chopped onion inside chicken. Place chicken in fridge, covered for 2 hours. Preheat oven right before taking chicken out of fridge to 350 degrees. Now take chicken out of fridge, add 2 cups water to bottom of roaster and cook at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Uncover and place celery, rest of onions, and potatoes in roaster. Cover and put back in over. Cook for another 30 minutes or until chicken is a golden brown on top, and vegetables are tender. Remove from oven. Allow chicken to cool before slicing. Serves 4 people.

Add your favorite wine or beverage and your meal is complete.
