Best Canada Day Chicken Recipes for Dinner

Were also a little guilty of getting into a routine and doing it the same way every single time. Ok so maybe we do it two different ways! The point is we need to spice it up a little (ok alot!).  These chicken recipes for your Canada Day dinner are loaded with mouth-watering herbs and spices that are sure to please. Herbs like rosemary and garlic not only add flavour but are very healthy too!

Oven Roasted Chicken with Garlic and Rosemary

Ingredients:

3 ½ Pound chicken

2 Springs of fresh rosemary

3 Garlic cloves, peeled

Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

2 Tablespoons vegetable oil

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Wash the chicken inside and out with cold water, and pat thoroughly dry. Place one of the fresh rosemary springs inside the bird’s cavity together with all the garlic, salt and pepper. Rub 1 tablespoon of the oil over the chicken’s skin and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Strip the leaves from the remaining rosemary and sprinkle over the chicken. Place the chicken with the remaining tablespoon of oil in a roasting pan, and place it on the middle rack of the preheated oven. Every 15 minutes turn and baste with the fat and cooking juices that have collected at the bottom of the pan. Cook until the thigh feels very tender when prodded with a fork and the meat comes easily off the bone, about 1 – 1.5 hours.

Transfer the chicken to a warm serving platter.

Tip the roasting pan and spoon off all but a small amount of fat. Place the pan over the stove, turn the heat on high, add 2 tablespoons of water and while it boils away use a wooden spoon to scrape loose cooking residues stuck to the bottom. Pour the pan juices over the chicken and serve at once.
