Celebrating Food Revolution Year Long: Roast chicken with potatoes and carrots.

Hey Everyone! Thank you joining my little chefling and me in celebrating Food Revolution all year long.

(If you are joining us now: The big day is over (a full recap and links to all the albums HERE) and like we promised each other we are going to keep this revolution alive 365 days and create a healthier and happier world! This year Food Revolution Day was, above all, about sharing the power of cooking and we are focusing on ten recipes that together can teach us all the skills we need to feed ourselves and our families good, nutritious food for years to come! Each month I will be sharing one out of the ten Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution recipes so we can all cook it together with our children. Just one recipe in 30 days! Yes, that is it, so doable right? And at the end of the year, I assure you we will have children who will appreciate new flavourstaste new ingredients and flavoursdevelop a love for real food and will make tons of happy memories with you in the kitchen).

Month seven. Recipe seven.

Roast chicken with potatoes and carrots happens to be my little chefling’s favorite dinner. So much so that in her list for what she is thankful for this constantly makes an appearance! Yes, that kind of love for the roast chicken (More on some of the many many things that she is thankful for in the next post).

This is a classic Sunday dinner that your whole family will love. It’s super simple too. Always try to buy the
best quality chicken you can affordThe beauty of cooking the whole bird, is you’ll have leftovers for more meals later in the week – shred the meat into stir-fries or sandwiches or boil up the carcass for chicken soup.


Here is super fun video for your little ones that they can watch before they begin making the roast.
