WW Garlic Roast Chicken with Crisp Potatoes and Mushrooms

http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/kellers_roast_chicken/So I didn’t add the potato to this because we had beets instead. Boiled beets with salt on them. OH my goodness were they good. Not sure off the top of my head what the WW points for beets are but they are wonderful. I also used pearl onions and caramelized them prior to adding to the recipe. This and the bannock bread that we made this afternoon was a really good meal. I wish I had used more chicken and less onion but it was very good. I love that this is a Weight Watcher’s recipe too.


1½ pounds small Yukon Gold potatoes,

scrubbed 2 cups cremini mushrooms

3 small onions, each cut into 6 wedges

6 large garlic cloves, minced

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon dried thyme or rosemary

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon poultry seasoning

2 teaspoons paprika

1 (3½-pound) chicken, without giblets

1 cup cherry tomatoes


1  Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray large roasting pan with nonstick spray.

2  Toss together potatoes, mushrooms, onions, half of garlic, the oil, thyme, ½ teaspoon of salt, and ¼ teaspoon of pepper in prepared pan. Push vegetables to sides of pan.

3  Stir together remaining garlic, the poultry seasoning, paprika, and remaining ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper in cup; add enough water to make a paste.

4  Rinse chicken inside and out under cold running water. Pat dry with paper towels. Rub garlic paste all over chicken. Tuck wings under and tie legs together with kitchen string. Place chicken, breast side up, in center of pan

5. Roast stirring vegetables occasionally, 35 minutes. Scatter tomatoes over vegetables. Roast until instant-read thermometer inserted into thigh (not touching bone) registers 180°F and vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes longer.

6  Transfer chicken to cutting board and let stand 10 minutes. Carve chicken and serve with vegetables. Remove chicken skin before eating.
