Orange Roasted Chicken

Orange Roasted Chicken

Here is another easy roast chicken recipe. This recipe is perfect for fall. Do you like my Dad’s crazy “vintage” ice bucket in the background? I have a love, hate affair with that crazy ice bucket, and wanted to share it with you. It must be from the sixties. I keep putting it in the giveaway basket, but I can never seem to part with it. It’s so ugly I like it. He always sent Florida citrus to our family up north during the holidays, so whenever I do a fall or winter dishes with citrus it always reminds me of him and this crazy brightly colored ice bucket.

    I usually do lemon, not orange, so will give this a try for sure. That ice bucket is great!

    How gorgeous! Your chicken is literally erupting with flavor! I think chicken pairs so beautifully with citrus, and this seems like a simple and flavorful way to roast America’s favorite bird. Thank you for sharing it (and you ice bucket) A very colorful post indeed!)

    Looks fabulous! I always fill my Thanksgiving turkey with citrus and herbs too. Stuffing gets baked separately and we always have the moistest turkey ever.
