One of the most popular websites on the Internet is a picture of a chicken. It has been featured in many an article as being one of nature’s perfect foods, and with good reason.

I can’t remember ever thinking that I would be enjoying one particular meal as a substitute for meat loaf. We all have those memories of growing up and having mom chop up our meat and sauteed it in some butter or sauce. The thought of having to do that every day was more than a little intimidating. Then one day, I was gifted a cut of roasted chicken from one of my aunt’s heirlooms, so I decided to treat myself.
I sauteed the chicken in some olive oil and herbs. I added onion, bell pepper and garlic. I placed the bird on a large plate and simmered until the day was over. When the bird was done, I served it with some baked potatoes and rice along with some baked sweet potatoes and broccoli. The dish was absolutely delicious!
This was just one of the many times that I have used this simple dish to whip up something special for a family get together or a house warming. It is also one of the reasons that I have decided to start my own small catering business. By simply adding a chicken to the menu, it has become one of my most popular entrees. In fact, people often ask me what they should get for their first meal after visiting my restaurant.
This picture of a chicken has even been incorporated into a kids’ birthday party cookbook. Kids like to pretend that the chicken they are eating is themselves. This makes for a great theme for a fun party.
My personal favorite thing about this delightful dish is that I do not have to spend a great deal of time preparing it. You can usually throw it in the crock pot or serve it right from the oven. You do not need to purchase any expensive ingredients or tools. All you need are your hands and some patience.
