With fresh peaches from the farmer’s market and lavender from my yard, this roast chicken from Diana Henry’s A Bird in the Hand: Chicken recipes for every day and every mood was fantastic! I don’t often think to cook fruit with meat but this dish will definitely be repeated. The chicken was moist and flavorful and the peaches were delicious, even left over the next day. This would be good for entertaining, as it’s a bit different and doesn’t require a lot of last minute attention. Once you’ve browned the chicken and taken care of the sauce, it bakes for 40 minutes while you can visit with your friends or family.
This is what it looks like as it goes into the oven. Isn’t it beautiful?
I highly recommend this book. Every recipe has been super!
