- 2 1/2–3 lbs whole chicken
- 1 fresh lemon, cut in half
- 1 fresh clove garlic, minced or chopped finely
- Salt and pepper
- 2 T fresh chopped tarragon
- 1/2 medium chopped onion
Spinach and Kale
- 1 large bag of chopped kale
- 1/2 bag of baby spinach
- 3 T toasted pine nuts
- 1 t freshly grated Parmesan cheese (I added a bit extra as we ♥ freshly grated parmesan)
- 1 T fresh lemon juice
- Preheat the oven to 400F
- Clean, rinse, and pat the chicken dry with paper towels
- Squeeze ½ of the lemon over the outside of the chicken
- Rub the chicken with garlic, salt and pepper.
- Place the tarragon, onion, and the other half of the lemon inside the chicken cavity.
- Place in an oven-proof dish and bake for ±1-1½ hours till the juices run clear. This will depend on your oven, so keep an eye on it.
- In the end, you can grill it to get a nice brown-baked color.
Spinach and Kale
- Toss the pine nuts into a dry non-stick pan and warm over medium heat until the oils begin to release from the nuts, about 5-8 minutes, shaking the pan frequently so they don’t burn.
- Set aside to cool.
- Saute the kale in a large pan in a bit of water for ±5 minutes till wilted.
- Add the spinach and saute another ±5 minutes, adding a few tablespoons of water if necessary.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Once greens are wilted, remove from heat, stir in the Parmesan and lemon juice.
- Serve, garnishing with a bit more Parmesan and the toasted pine nuts.
