A friend who was a few years below us at Chapel Hill just moved to NYC, and really, what better way to welcome a friend than by roasting a chicken in her honor? I have been wanting to try Ina Garten's Roast Chicken for years, and it was definitely worth the wait. I cooked mine in a slow cooker since I knew I would have to rush home from work and didn't want everyone to have to wait to eat until 9pm - but otherwise stuck to the recipe pretty closely. Served with some cous cous and a vegetable gratin and accompanied by never ending bottles of rosé - it was a tasty little meal for our new New Yorker!

[slow cooker made the chicken fall apart a bit too much - but it was tasty]
[this is a good one ;)]
