Roasted Chicken with Garlic and Rosemary
Serves 4
A simple yet delicious Italian recipe, my mother would roast the chicken with potatoes and pumpkin on the side. I loved the sweetness of the roasted pumpkin so much that my family used to nick name me 'Peter Pumpkin Eater' after the nursery rhyme. Another great thing with this recipe is that its classically Paleo without it even knowing it. I have added some optional ingredients which my mother never really used it the recipe so you can feel free to add them for some variance.
