Simple roast chicken with vegetables is a comforting dinner and a family favorite. It seems like there's nothing more satisfying than a one-pot chicken dish. This recipe came from an estate sale. I obtained it when I purchased the family collection from the Wadley Estate in Allen, Texas in 1990.



  1. Place potatoes cut side down, onion, carrot and garlic cloves in a rectangular baking pan.
  2. Sprinkle with rosemary and dot with butter.
  3. Rinse chicken inside and out then pat dry and place breast side up atop vegetables.
  4. Roast uncovered in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes then brush chicken with pan juices and return to oven.
  5. Continue to roast basting often for 45 minutes.
  6. Tilt chicken to drain juices from cavity into pan.
  7. Transfer chicken, potatoes and half the garlic to a platter and keep warm.
  8. Scrape onion, carrot, remaining garlic and pan juices into a blender and process until smoothly pureed adding enough broth to make a pourable sauce.
  9. Season with salt and pepper then pour sauce into a small serving bowl.
  10. Serve chicken and vegetables with sauce.
