Okay, I know this is a terrible picture. It looks like Mr. Chicken went swimming in the Florida Everglades. I apologize. I'm very non-technology friendly. I'm actually amazed that I was able to put a picture up here at all. But I promise - this chicken is just delish.
This yummy and EASY recipe is perfect for Friday night, or any time you need an simple chicken dish for the whole family. So here it is:
-1 chicken, preferably dead. Why go to the trouble of shechting your own chicken, you know?
-1 can of pesto rub. If you've got too much time on your hands, you can make your own.
-salt, olive oil, and lots and lots of white wine
Rub the pesto and a few pinches of salt into the chicken. Splash a lot of white wine around the chicken, about enough to go halfway up the pan. Add olive oil to the white wine and rub a little extra on the chicken itself. Put the sprigs of basil and rosemary in the cavity of the chicken. Bake covered on 350 degrees for, like, a long time. Honestly, I have no idea how long to bake a chicken for. I usually just check it at around an hour. If any of you know how long you bake a chicken for, please share it with the rest of us. When you see it's close to being done, uncover it, baste it with the sauce, and bake until it starts to turn brown.
Be honest with me - isn't that the most modest chicken you ever did see? Let me know how you enjoyed it! Wishing you all a wonderful Shabbat!
