A roast chicken dinner is actually one of the easiest dinners to make.
It is on the menu here often at “Moe’s Diner”.
Simple enough even for a worknight meal.
I almost always grocery shop on my way to work. In fact I grocery shop almost every day.
Something I have always done.
Wasn’t sure what I wanted for dinner but decided while shopping that we would have a roast chicken dinner tonight. Instead of buying a whole chicken I bought chicken breasts.
Had intended to roast two, but they were so big I went with just one.
I called on my way home and asked Moe to turn the oven on to 500°F, so I didn’t have to wait long for it to heat up.
Got the chicken seasoned and into the oven at about 5:40 and while it roasted, peeled the potatoes and got them on to cook and snapped the ends off of the green beans.
Since this was a weeknight dinner, I kept it simple.
Then since it was going to be a little while, I made us both Bloody Caesars.
Between the celery, dill pickles, spicy dill green beans and the olives, Moe had a salad.
When the chicken came out of the oven, I left it to rest. Put the beans on to steam, made the gravy from the pan drippings and mashed the potatoes.
The one chicken breast turned out to be more than enough for two.
Served with mashed potatoes and gravy and steamed green beans.
