Limitation creates stunning results

I am trying to have my kids over for dinner more often and I love to try new recipes so when I saw this recipe for Herb Roasted Chicken
I decided it would be just right. Since there are five of us I decided to fix two chickens and consequently there was not enough room in the oven to cook the dressing too so I simply removed the chickens and covered them with foil and let them sit while the dressing cooked.....Wow! this was the juiciest chicken I have ever eaten and found out later that it is often recommended to let your meat sit a spell before cutting....never too old to learn, that is my motto!
I will say that there is so much oil used in the recipe that you will need to use chicken broth with just a little of the drippings to make your gravy, but it is is mmmmm good.
