Roast Chicken Dinner -- Help

cheesecake17 | Oct 5, 2009 11:37 AM

I'm having company for dinner, and I'd like to serve a roast chicken. Here's my proposed menu.. please let me know if anything should be changed. We'll be 4 people.

-arugula salad with balsamic glazed cippolini onions

- roasted whole chicken
- anybody have a recipe for something nice and herby? I was thinking to rub herbs and olive oil or margarine under the skin and roast it. How long to roast?

- side dishes--- I was thinking roasted potatoes and brussel sprout hash with shallots.

My plan is to prepare everything the night before- clean and prepare the chicken and have it ready in the roasting pan. Have the arugula ready and peel the cippolinis. Have the potatoes scrubbed and spiced and in a ziplock. Shred the sprouts, chop the shallots and garlic, and have in all separate ziplocks.

Any ideas for a dessert? Needs to be dairy free- can use margarine- and prepared a day or two in advance.

Thanks!! I really want to impress with this dinner...
