This easy recipe features fall produce gems (like carrots and turnips), however you can use whatever vegetables you like, or leave them out altogether. And for anyone intimidated by tackling the whole bird... don't be. Roasting your whole thing is actually one of the simplest, most hands off ways to prepare chicken. So while you're at it, honestly, you should just go ahead make two chickens—it's no harder than buying and prepping another bird. And that will guarantee you plenty of succulent protein to work with in the coming days.
Once you have your chicken(s) roasted and have enjoyed some warm from the oven, use the rest throughout the week in these six dishes. As they say, bird's the word.
Chicken and Fontina Panini: Layer pesto, chicken, tomato slices, and fontina on ciabatta bread and cook in a panini press (or in a cast iron skillet, using something heavy to weigh the sandwich down) until gooey on the inside and toasty on the outside.
Greek-Style Chicken Salad: This is an especially great option to pack for lunch. Chop chicken and toss with a lemony Greek yogurt-based dressing. Serve on top of a cucumber-tomato salad with lots fresh of parsley and pita chips. Seriously, the pita chips aren't optional.
