Roasted Chicken with Carrots & Parships
Six ingredients + French Made Easy + 45-50 minutes = goodness awaits!
This is a very simple recipe. If you can turn on your oven, chop vegetables and spread seasonings on a whole chicken, then you can make this dish. And…you'll love every bite!
Don't forget to preheat your oven to 500 degree. (Yes, I said 500 degrees - that's the trick to this dish. A really hot oven!) This recipe can also be made with any of our seasoning blends! They all make roasted chickens burst with flavor.

|10 - 15 mins||45 - 50 mins||1 hr or so|
3 Tsp French Made Easy or Any of Our Blends
5 Pounds Whole chicken
4 Carrots, peeled and cut
4 Parsnips, peeled and cut
1 Tbsp Large onion, halved and sliced 1/4"
2 Tbsp Olive oil
1 Lemon, sliced in quarters
Easy to make and the prep + cooking time takes about an hour. Ingredients to use are: 5 pound chicken, carrots, parsnips, an onion and a lemon. And of course, French Made Easy seasoning blend!
Peel the parsnips and carrots and then cut them in half. Next, cut each half in half lengthwise. See picture above.
Cut the onion in half then slice again with 1/4" thickness.
Use a roasting pan. I used a dutch oven but any roasting pan will do. Add half of your carrots, parsnips and onions in the pan. Drizzle the vegetables with olive oil and 1 teaspoon of French Made Easy seasoning.
Rub the chicken down with some more olive oil, and then rub on the remaining 2 teaspoons of French Made Easy seasoning.
Take 1/2 the lemon and stuff the inside of the chicken. Put the chicken on top of the vegetables. After that, place the rest of your carrots, parsnips, onion and lemon around the chicken.
Cook at 500 degrees Fahrenheit for 45-50 minutes, uncovered. If you have a meat thermometer handy, insert it into the bird, and cook until it reads 170-180 degrees.
Remove the pan from the oven and let it sit for 10 minutes. Slice up the chicken and serve. But be careful when you start to slice it. Juice will pour everywhere. Look at all the juice on the cutting board!
The carrots and parsnips caramelize nicely. Slice up the chicken, then spoon some of the juice in the bottom of the pan over it for additional flavor. Mix up the carrots and parsnips then serve immediately! Enjoy!
