The smell of chicken roasting in the oven brings along a feeling of comfort in our home during cold winter months. This recipe, full of flavor, will also fill your home with the wonderful scent of garlic and rosemary during the cooking process.
This is a popular dish that has been shared by many respectable cooks. Often, this recipe calls for the use of liquor and white wine. For our version, we keep things simple and allow the flavors of the chicken to be enhanced only by bathing in herbs (and a massive amount of garlic) for a few hours. Do not get so caught up in the tender and juicy chicken that you forget to enjoy the steamed cloves of garlic. They are a wonderful little treat in their own right.
I am a big fan of non-traditional guacamole. Avocados are so versatile and I don’t think we give them enough credit. I decided to make guacamole with basically the complete opposite flavor of traditional guacamole. We had gotten some delicious tomatoes, basil and goat cheese from our farmer’s market and I decided that I wanted to combine those flavors for the guacamole. I also decided to use some roasted garlic because it lends a sweet garlic flavor instead of a “kill a vampire” flavor.
The combination turned out absolutely amazing and really is a perfect seasonal dip. It may take your senses a second to realize it isn’t the traditional flavor but it is so worth trying!
