Herb-Roasted Chicken with Citrus

By Samantha Binkley

Looking for another winner-winner chicken dinner? Well, search no more! This version of roast chicken is SPECIAL and relatively easy every time with Healthy On You® Seasoning Beneath my Wings or Provence You’ve Been Gone spice blends. Both spices create a beautiful herb bouquet that makes your home smell absolutely delightful while it’s baking. Add in garlic bulbs that roast to perfection, lemons, and kumquats which are in season. ⁠You can also substitute oranges or tangerines, skin on, and quartered in lieu of the kumquats. You will still get that fragrant citrus vibe throughout the recipe.
