Oh my WORD, that spice rub has got to be the best thing I have tasted in a long time! We didn't have a whole chicken so used thigh portions instead and we also used sweet potatoes in place of potatoes. The chicken was deliciously flavored, tender and succulent and just writing about it now is making my tastebuds drooool!

I like to make a beef pot roast with potatoes, carrots, and onions.

My favorite holiday roast is a Turkey Breast with stuffing

We all love roasted chicken at our house. I serve it with long grain rice and lingonberries. I also use lots of fresh rosemary for garnish.

Herbed pot roast is probably my favorite, but I've had chuck roast with potatoes, carrots and onions more often.
