Flat roast Chicken is the recipe of the day! I make roasted potatoes and broccoli to go along with this dish.
Flat Roast Chicken
1 whole Chicken
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 cloves garlic, smashed & peeled
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Using kitchen shear cut along both sides of the back bone of the chicken to remove. Save/freeze to make broth later. Open the chicken legs and spread chicken down flat. Press down on breast bone to flatten. Pat dry with paper towels. Season generously with salt & pepper. Heat large ovenproof skillet, preferrably cast iron, over high heat. Add 1 Tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp butter into the skillet. Add chicken skin side down. Let brown without moving about 3 minutes. Turn chicken being careful not to break the skin. Transfer skillet to oven. Roast chicken until golden brown and cooked through (juice run clear or temperature is 165 degrees) Transfer chicken to a cutting board and let stand 10 minutes. Add 1 tbsp lemon juice, and remaining butter to pan, swirling to combine, set aside. In a small bowl whisk remaining 3 tbsp of olive oil, 2 tbsp lemon juice, red pepper flakes, garlic and a pinch of salt. Cut chicken into pieces, drizzle with oil mixture and pan sauce. Serve immediately.

Today we are continuing in the kitchen with the cupboards! One at a time clean out each cabinet, wipe shelves down and then return just the items that you really need in that cabinet. Throw or give away any items you no longer use or love! The neater your cabinets are the easier it is to put away dishes, groceries, etc. Once everything is back inside wipe down the outside of the cabinet and move on to the next one. I realize you may not get very many cabinets done in just 15-20 minutes and that’s okay we will be back here next month and it’s one more than you had done before you started!
