Roast Chicken with Lemon Thyme

Lemon Thyme Roast Chicken

Roast chicken is still one of my favorite meals and perfect for a lazy Sunday dinner. This is ridiculously easy to make and has a wonderful flavor from the lemon thyme, bay leaf and garlic. If you don’t have lemon thyme on hand than you can easily substitute with thyme – it will still taste great.

Happy Roasting : )
