roasted chicken & potatoes

last night we had roasted chicken & potatoes a la gwyneth paltrow's latest goop post "make." while we didn't do everything the same as gwenny, we definitely kept with the main theme.

the main differences we did was:

1. we used clementine juice instead of lemon juice. we had some clementines on hand and forgot to pick up lemons at the store with the rest of the ingredients but it definitely worked.

2. we used what was growing in our garden for the salad. we used black seeded simpson lettuce, purple lettuce, and a little swiss chard for the greens. we used carrots, cucumber and grape tomatoes.

3. for the dressing we didn't have any champagne vinegar. we used a mixture of white wine vinegar and balsamic vinegar.

i think it's really about making good use what you have. it turned out really fantastic. i would definitely have this meal again.

Looks and sounds delizioso! I always love citrus dishes -- they're so refreshing in the summer. I will have to try this!
