Introduction: Baked Chicken

Super easy, super tasty and very inexpensive! I got inspiration from a TV show and put my own twist into it.
I make this dish almost every week.

Hope you try it!

1 chicken
4 carrots
2 medium onions
1 lemon
Ground pepper, I used white pepper, but you can use wichever you prefer
4 garlic cloves
Dijon mustard
Olive oil, just a drizzle

Step 1: Preparing Vegetables!

Peal carrots and onions.
Wash carrots with running water.
Slice onions thickly.
Cut carrots in half, and the thicker half in half longuise.
Put them in an oven safe tray and season with salt, pepper, rosemary and a drizzle of olive oil.

Step 2: Season Chicken

The amounts of each season depend on your personal taste and you can add more herbs or other seasons to add complexity, but here is how I do it.

Start seasoning the inside of the chicken with sal, pepper and rosemary.

Spread a good amount of Dijon mustard all over the skin and season with salt, pepper and rosemary. The mustard will make the skin super crunchy and you won't notice the taste. Even if you don't like mustard, I promiss you won't regret using it!

Crush garlic cloves, I don't bother to peel them, insert them inside the chicken.
Poke lemon with a fork or knife and put it inside the chicken too.
Place the chicken in the tray with the veggies.

You could tie the chicken legs with baker string, but I don' t think it's necessary.

Step 3: Bake!

Put the tray in the oven at 180-200°Celsius for 45 to 60 mn.

I like to serve with rice, but you can serve it using carrots as a side dish or just throw in some potatos. One tray, one full and deliciosa meal!

Bon apetit!
