Traditional Roast Chicken for Christmas
With Christmas only a few months away, it is almost time to start thinking about some ideas... why not considering traditional roast chicken for Christmas?
It is a delicious food item for the Christmas table and can be eaten warm for a Winter Christmas or cold for the summer Christmas in South-Africa.
Traditional roast chicken for Christmas definitely falls into one of my favourites. As a personal lover of chicken dishes, any form of chicken is more than welcome in our home.
It can be cut into thin slices and be beautifully placed onto a platter and decorated on your festive table. If there are any left overs, just add mayonnaise and you have a nice chicken mayo sandwich for the next day, with almost no effort!
For this delicious roast chicken you must use the lovely fresh herbs as stated in the recipe.
While still working at Augusta Kleinbosch Guest Farm, we had a lovely system over the festive season regarding our shifts. The one year you were working on Christmas day, but be off on New Year, and the following year you will be off on Christmas and working on New Year. It really worked well for us. I made this delicious traditional roast chicken for Christmas - me and Iwan's 1 st. Christmas together. I just came across the note how my hubbie enjoyed the meal. Great memories!
If you are looking for a wine that goes really well with this roast chicken recipe that I can strongly recommend Lutzville wine diamond collection Chardonnay. rich in flavour and complexity, can be enjoyed with dishes such as grilled, seared or roast shellfish like lobster and scallops or roasted chicken with mushrooms and slow roast tomatoes.
