Roasted Chicken with Herb Salt

Last week after our fresh herb class, we received herb salt made from the fresh herbs (didn't want them to go to waste!). I managed to get it home on the plane (although it definitely looked like something illegal in my suitcase, and combined with my knife set, I'm surprised I didn't get searched!). I found a chicken at the grocery store for 3.50, and cleaned it and rubbed down the inside and out with the herb salt. I drizzled a tiny amount of olive oil on and put it in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes per pound of meat (about 1.5 hours for me). This was an awesome chicken. It was so moist and flavorful, and even inexpensive to make! Make a big batch of herb salt to use on lots of other things too. Rub it on whatever you are making right before you cook it so the salt doesn't have a chance to draw the moisture out of the meat.
I promise I will try to work on taking better pictures this summer....which I can't believe it's almost the end of June. We have some big things happening right now that I will share details of soon!


My not so pretty in a picture, but nice looking and awesome tasting in real life, chicken!

Herb salt
handful rosemary
handful thyme
handful oregano
handful sage (optional)
handful kosher salt
2 cloves garlic

Mince all of the fresh herbs so fine they are like dust. Mince the garlic as small as possible, also. Mix together with the kosher salt and store in the refrigerator to use on meats, vegetables, breads, or whatever sounds good!



We went out for a little country cruise last night and saw this peacock crossing the street! Random!!
