Food Is Not Your Enemy

Go Ahead and Roast Yourself a Chicken

There’s pretty much nothing easier to make for dinner than a roast chicken. Rinse it. Put in in a roasting pan. Brush it with a mixture of melted butter, a few tablespoons of lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon of any dried herb you like. Put it in a 375 degree oven for about 2 hours. Done.

If you don’t have time when you get home from work to wait the 2 hours, then cook the chicken the night before, during your TV-watching time after dinner. You can then simply reheat it or enjoy it cold the next night.

When wholesome, home-cooked food is this easy to prepare, there’s no reason to constantly rely on takeout, now, is there? Plus, you’ll save a ton of money over the long run. And a ton of calories.

What I would do is cut it up, and microwave each serving on a plate. Easiest thing, I think.
