Lemon Roast Chicken & Broccolini - Cooking for Max

October 12, 2017

After my last Cooking For Max meal from Ina's cookbook felt quite light, I thought I would try something a little bit more complex and "Man-Friendly." I gave Ina's Lemon Roasted Chicken a shot and let me tell you, it was a lot easier than I thought! The only major issue I ran into was my own cringy-ness in having to butterfly the chicken (Note: have the butcher do it next time.)
I didn't necessarily have a hard time, but essentially using shears to cut through chicken bone was not my favorite thing of all time.
I will say that this chicken was so juicy and moist, which is so hard to do with chicken, let alone an entire chicken! I paired the chicken with Ina's roasted broccolini, which was really easy and very delicious.. I definitely liked it way more than regular broccoli. Max loved this meal too. I couldn't believe how easy it was, but it will be something we definitely have again and again... especially with the cooler weather heading this way!

Max's thoughts on the meal:
" This may be my favorite thing you've ever made." Said before even taking his first bite.
