    BecR's Note:

    The perfect roast chicken, using Scarborough Fair herbs--parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme and organic free-range chicken. This makes a lovely Sunday meal served with gravy made from the drippings if desired, and stuffing (see my Bread Stuffing), seasonal veggies, and mashed potatoes.
