Making my Family's Favorite Roasted Chicken with Lemon

Updated: Mar 28, 2020

Welcome to my very first cooking video! This is something I have talked about doing for such a long time. My passion for cooking comes from watching my parents own and operate an Italian restaurant for over 40 years. My life was centered around cooking and entertaining, without even knowing that was a thing, it's just what we did. Our Sunday meals were set up in the living room with at least room for 12 or more, there were nine of us and always extended family and friends around our table.

When my husband and I had our two sons, dinner time was never missed. It was a time for us to come together and share our day and stay connected. That is what cooking means to me, it brings the ones you love together to share a meal made with love.

This is a great dish served al fresco with your favorite sides and a nice bottle of wine.

“Hope your family and friends enjoy this chicken as much as my family does.”

Recipe - Roasted Chicken ( Cast Iron Skillet )

  • 3 1/2 - 4 Pound Chicken
