Roasted Chicken On The Bone

Chicken on the bone is one of our favorites. Its funny- when I was a kid, I wouldn’t touch chicken on the bone. I actually grew up in quiet the picky home. It was normal for me to not eat chicken on the bone. I wonder if it had to do with the fact that I was one of nine, and cutting up chicken for a bunch of kidS is just annoying!

Anyways, my year studying abroad in Israel, it was survival of the fittest, and I basically had to get accustomed to eating a lot of different foods if I didnt want to be hungry.

This recipe is so simple, quick and delicious. Serve with rice or quinoa.
