Picture of my plate. I ended up burning the kale, so no greens.
My preparation for the chicken was fairly simple. I took it out of the freezer to thaw, by placing it in a sink full of hot water. I haven't had a microwave in over a year, and I really don't miss it except for defrosting. After thawing the chicken, I put it in a roaster with a generous amount of salt, whole peppercorns, and about 7 cloves of minced garlic. Then, I added about an inch of water to the roaster and covered it. I baked it covered for an hour at 350 and then uncovered for about 45 minutes to brown a little. I then used the pan drippings with some cornstarch for gravy. Sometime I'll do a mashed potato post because my mashed potatoes are awesome.
I'm very happy I took the time to make this meal; even if I was the only one eating it. I boxed up leftover lunches for the next 2 days, and I have some chicken bones to use for stock (I'll do a post on this soon too).
