Roasted Lemon Chicken with Potatoes and Rosemary

When fall arrives, I start making supper from root vegetables and other hardly winter vegetables that are in season. This recipe is really easy to make. Once you put everything in the pan, you just leave it to cook for an hour and voila! You have a lovely fresh one pot chicken dish for dinner. You can change up the vegetables to whatever is in season, and also substitute the rosemary for thyme. Just use whatever you have on hand. Enjoy!
