While most people gather around a wonderful roasted turkey over the holidays, our family does not. We created a tradition of having roast chicken instead. Being a military family means that we spend many holidays far away from family. The fact that we are a family of three means that a turkey would be a bit much. So, we opt for roast chicken. It is the ultimate comfort food for us and it always reminds us that "home" can be wherever we are at the moment. I am happy to submit this recipe for Drop's Holiday Recipe Swap.
