Holiday Roast Chicken Recipe


4 Servings

15 min Prep, 1 h 30 min Cook


Contains Mustard


This succulent roast chicken is a must holiday dish. Ive adopted this recipe from my dad, it is a delicious and unique roasted chicken dish that is sure to impress any holiday gathering. Whether you’re hosting a small dinner party or cooking for the whole extended family, a roast chicken is one of the easiest dishes to make. That said, while many people learned to cook their chicken with onions and vegetables in a roasting pan, I like to surprise guests by adding something sweet—and it always gets compliments. My secret: diced pears, plums and apples. As the chicken cooks down, so does the fruit, creating an absolutely delicious sweet side dish that can be served alongside your vegetables.
