Recipes: Simple Roast Chicken Dinner

This is a wonderful meal for entertaining or when you just want some good comfort food. Pair the roast chicken, latkas, and applesauce with a fresh salad, and you’ve got an amazing and complete meal.

Simple Roast Chicken

  • 3 – 4 pound roasting chicken, cut into pieces
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup water

Mix all ingredients together in a ziploc bag, then squeeze out all the air and close. Refrigerate for at least one hour (preferably overnight).  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Pour marinade into a shallow roasting pan and place a rack in the pan so that the chicken will not touch the liquid.  Place the chicken on the rack and roast uncovered for about one hour or until juices run clear.

Traditional Latkas

  • 5 medium potatoes
  • 2 onions
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • About 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • Oil for frying

Peel potatoes and onion, then grate or pulse in a food processor. Pat with a paper towel to get rid of excess moisture. Add beaten eggs, salt, pepper, and enough flour to hold the mixture together. Drop about 1/4 cup of mixture into hot oil and flatten. Fry until golden, then turn and brown other side. Remove and drain on paper towels to remove extra oil.


  • 6 cooking apples, peeled and chopped (Granny Smith or Macintosh work well)
  • 1/4 cup apple juice or cider
  • Sugar to taste
  • Cinnamon to taste (optional)

Cook apples and juice slowly until soft. Mash with a potato masher. Add sugar and cinnamon to taste.
