Weekend Cooking- Two New Pinterest Recipes

Last week I tried two new Pinterest recipes, and they both turned out to be winners. I've had my eye on this Herb and Citrus Roasted Chicken, maybe because the photo just looked so darn good. The oranges and lemons gave it such a bright, fresh flavor. It's an easy recipe to make and the three of us who ate it all gave it thumbs up.

I found it at The Comfort of Cooking, and it's a refreshing summer dinner. The link is here.

To accompany the chicken, I tried this Balsamic Roasted Potato Salad. It was so delicious, and a nice change from the mayonnaise- based potato salads. The honey in it balances the balsamic vinegar beautifully. My guys liked it enough to eat the leftovers the next day. If you like German Potato Salad, you'll enjoy this recipe.
This one came from Your Home Based Mom, and the link is here.

We added sliced roasted zucchini that I got at the Union Square Greenmarket and it was a meal that pleased us all. I will make these two recipes again.


  1. I'm looking for a different potato salad for the Fourth. I think I'll give this one a try.

  2. YUM - that chicken looks delicious! I have roasted chicken with lemons and oranges before, but never at the same time! I must try this one.

  3. Both dishes look fab. Cheers from Carole's Chatter

  4. I love chicken and I love potatoes, so both sound really good! They also look yummy!

  5. I want to come eat at your house!

  6. We make a balsamic and potato dish -- grill-roast the potatoes and then toss them in balsamic vinegar and herbs while they are still hot. Yum! I love the look of your chicken dish, too.
