Mmm... Good Eats!

I made a roasted chicken tonight so adam could have leftovers while I'm gone the next two nights - and it was SO good. The whole meal was awesome with subtle fall flavored undertones.

Rice Pilaf
I just used a bagged mix of Carolina Rice Pilaf and added dried cherries while it cooked. Once it was done I added some slivered almonds. So tasty!

Steamed Asparagus

Orange and Honey Roasted Chicken

Take roasting chicken and remove giblet bag. Place on rack in a roasting pan.

In a mixing cup combine 2 tsp of salt and pepper, 1 T of cumin, a tsp. of garlic powder and half a T of cinnamon. Then add the zest of one orange and 1/4 cup of honey. Cut the orange in quarters, squeeze juice of 1/4 in the measuring cup and place remaining pieces in the cavity of the chicken. Stir mixture and pour over chicken and rub it into the bird.

Bake at 375 for approx. 1 hour based on size of the bird. Tent with foil or lid when bird gets crispy.
