Bistro roasted chicken dinner

Dan made us a delicious roast chicken dinner recently using Gordon Hamersley's roasted chicken with garlic lemon & parsley recipe. We like that this recipe uses classic French bistro flavors like dijon mustard and herbs de Proven├že (thyme, lavender, rosemary, etc.), and the herb and lemon infused sauce it makes is so yummy you'll be tempted to sip it! Along with the chicken we had honey glazed roasted carrots, and a fried medallion of goat cheese on tender bibb lettuce. I sprinkled some herbs de Proven├že into the French vinaigrette dressing that I made, which echoed the herbs used in the chicken. Here's a little trivia for you, "bistro" actually means "quickly" in Russian. Russian cossacks having their meals and wanting to be served quickly would shout "bistro, bistro."Even though it's a bistro style chicken, relax and take your time making this meal
