One of the foods my family will always eat is roasted chicken, even my youngest child, who is our current super picky eater. I’m still experimenting the best way to make it, but adding a good herb mix can be a delicious thing. While I wasn’t able to attend the ShiftCon Conference, I was asked if I’d like to try some of the fantastic natural products that were shown at the conference. Mountain Rose Herbs sent me three of their Epicurean Organics spice blends: Smoked Sea Salt, Mediterranean Seasoning, and Grilling Herbs. I decided to try to add these spices to my roast chicken repertoire. Simple Roasted Chicken with Mediterranean Seasoning
I decided to try the Mediterranean Seasoning (MSRP $4.90) with my roast chicken. It contains organic oregano, organic garlic, organic rosemary, organic fennel, and organic thyme.
I took a cut up organic chicken, took the skin off, added a little olive oil, lemon, and then added some Mediterranean Seasoning sprinkled on top. Simple, easy and delicious. I roasted this in my oven at 400 degrees for 45 minutes (keeping an eye on it to make sure it didn’t overcook). I served it with brown basmati rice (from my instant pot, of course), some warmed up pinto beans, and sauteed plantains (take plantains, cut up, sautee, and cinnamon). So amazing!
In fact, we liked it so much I made it again the next night with drumsticks. I may have used a little too much Mediterranean seasoning, so use a lighter hand than I did!
If you want to make a simple roasted chicken, then the Mediterranean Seasoning will make this utterly enchanting.
It was terrific.
