Day 3, Labor Day… It was another gorgeous day in the Pacific Northwest. Lots of blue skies and sunshine. And because it was beautiful and warm, we had a quick and easy picnic for lunch. Tomato salad with slices of turkey, hard boiled eggs, and pickles (because we all love pickles around here).
For dinner I made my friend Peter’s super delicious Smoky Whole Lemon-Garlic Chicken. Oh, what a treat!! The recipe was super easy to follow, even though it’s missing instructions on what to do with the other half onion and the garlic. But I’m sure, he’ll fix it just as soon as he reads my review. 😉
Well, as for me, I added the garlic to the butter mix. Then I sliced the second half of the onion and spread it across the chicken, then baked the whole thing. The chicken came out tender, and absolutely amazing.
As a side I cooked asparagus in a cast iron pan. I used bacon grease and splashed a little balsamic vinegar on it, then simply cooked it on medium heat until it was nice and soft. The perfect addition to the chicken. Nom nom! What a great way to end a perfect day!
Thank you, Peter!
