Cari's Crouton Chicken

Cari’s Crouton Chicken

Ok, people. This is my absolute favorite dinner on the planet. My kids beg for this. My bestie, Cari made it for me years ago and it was the most delicious thing. I’m not sure what she does to it, but it’s so great. Mine is ALMOST as great as hers. Almost. The chicken pieces are slowly roasted in the oven on a bed of garlic, onion and lemons. Once the chicken is roasted perfectly and the onions and garlic are caramelized, we pull the chicken from the bone. We add it to the onions and garlic and those toasted homemade croutons. Can we talk about these croutons. We take a Breadworks baguette, cube it and toss it with some olive oil and butter. We gently roast it in the oven until its crisp on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. Is this dinner best served right out of the oven? Sure, but I can tell you it’s just as good the next day. I promise. This awesome dinner comes with mashed Yukon potatoes on the side.
