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.
