With our weeks being so busy with school and life, I really look forward to slowly down at the end of the day with a family dinner. For the most part I cook every night, and that means always trying to stay creative with our meals so we don't get bored. One of our favorite go-to meals that the kids and I love is a roasted chicken.

With the holidays coming this is also a great way to cook for a large group where we have been testing out the options from Joyce Farms, a family-owned company where you can discover organic gourmet all-natural chicken and grass-fed beef.

For this recipe, I made a roast with the Poulet Rouge Fermier heritage breed chicken, a breed that is considered to be the best tasting chicken in the world. A simple way to create a delicious dinner, I also added in some potatoes, carrots, and sweet potatoes that was seasoned with parsley, onion, and lemon for a delicious way to enjoy our precious family time.
