I have no idea why I don’t roast whole chicken more often. When it’s been an exceptionally long day and I’m feeling overwhelmed I tend to just grab a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store.

This whole roast chicken is delicious though and I will definitely be cooking it a lot more often. Maybe I should bring back family dinner night on Sunday evenings and cook a roast dinner for the whole family.

Looking for another delicious family dinner recipe that I made thanks to Perdue Farms? Take a look at my Smoked Kielbasa with Gnocchi recipe. I’m also sharing details about the new Perdue Farms Gatherings Bundle that’s now available. This would make such a wonderful gift for a family in need this holiday season. Or, send a box to a family member who is hosting dinner at their home this year. You can even order one for yourself to stockpile your freezer.
