Perfect Roast Chicken

Perfect Roast Chicken created by Debbwl

There are hundreds of ways to roast a chicken. This one gave a nice simple and juicy flavor that my family loved. It was declared a "don't lose this recipe mom." I used a Hawaiian salt on the chicken but any coarse salt would work. The Hawaiian salt just adds a bit of a different flavor.

    I roast chicken all the time with lemon and garlic so the addition of fresh ginger made a tasty and unique twist. Thanks for the post.
