The beauty of the roasted bird: Prep it, stuff it, pop it onto the pan, bake it, turn it, bake a little more. A satisfying dinner for four or dinner and lunch for 2 for 2 meals just as my boyfriend requested. Get creative, add bacon pieces inside or over the crust, or whatever your heart desires and your nose enjoys;-).

4-5# chicken, whole or quartered
6 oz
smoky bacon barbecue sauce
3-4 medium
carrots, cut into 1
1/2 medium
onion, quartered
6 small
baby bell peppers or 1/2 bell pepper, cut into 1
4 clove
garlic, or more to taste
1 Tbsp
shallot and herb blend, leftover seasoning

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2Cut carrots, onions, bell pepper into 1" cubes if using whole pieces. Create a layer on a roaster pan to set chicken on.
3Insert some carrots, onions, bell pepper, lemon and garlic into bird, rub with shallots and baste with barbecue sauce.
4Optionally, you can baste the entire bird before roasting, or for a move even crisp roast, turn the bird half-way through cooking and baste the top. For even better flavor, add some barbecue sauce and/or seasonings into the opening of the bird.
