Crispy Roast Chicken
Crispy Roasted Chicken Recipe
Crispy Roast Chicken. Roasted chicken always brings up images of Sunday dinner, sitting around the table enjoying the simple yet lavish meal our mother had made. Biting into the crispy skin with moist, tender, juicy meat bursting with flavor is almost decadent. My all-time favorite has always been roasted chicken with a crispy outer skin. Simple ingredients such as olive oil, paprika, salt, and pepper make this dish a flavorful savory meal.
It’s cost-effective and just plain yummy. Healthy meals such as wraps, pasta, soup, and couscous help stretch out our leftovers and save money. Served with apple cornbread stuffing, and roasted carrots, this dish is a healthy filling meal any family on a budget can enjoy.
The Price Tag
The prices listed below were based on grocery store averages. Most stores have weekly meat/poultry sales, and you can get all your meat for the following week then. As you can see below, the savings are amazing. The store butcher behind the counter will know when your store meat/poultry sales are, so be sure to ask.
The rest of the ingredients was purchased during a sale as well. Other than the chicken, you can modify the dish accordingly to sale items. A variation commonly used, is to stuff the chicken with a mixture of quartered lemons and limes. They are almost always cheap and give the chicken a unique burst of flavor.
