Guess what? It’s fall! That means I’m back! I’m alive I can use the oven, I cook and bake again and it won’t be over 100 degrees in my apartment! That’s okay I had a lot going on for this summer.

Weddings, seeing family that came back from Africa, new job, concerts, make new friends and reconnecting with old ones.

Realizing why I liked what I liked in my youth and bringing it back it into my life, it was a lot of personal growth and figuring out who I was this season. With that being said let’s start this season off with good things this includes this chicken!

I made this chicken last Sunday My friend came over and I made dinner, let me tell you I didn’t make this for me and the Cat that’s a whole other story.  This recipe is from my new favorite cookbook Seriously Delish by Jessica Merchant

Take your softened butter and minced garlic and mix them together til well mixed together. Now stick you hands under the chickens skins to create surface area, Start taking globs of the garlic butter and rubbing under the skin of the chicken. once you’re finished coat the chicken with olive oil and the salt and pepper to taste, I cook chicken breast side down so the juice drips into it. Tuck the wings underneath and cook til juices run clear about 80 minutes.
