How to Make Roast Chicken w/ Vegetables, sans Chicken

Cecilia | Nov 8, 200401:38 PM     7

Hi everyone,

I am so glad that there is a separate board to talk about cooking.

When I make roast chicken, I always have a layer of carrots, garlic, and onions at the bottom of the pan. And, I always pour about a cup of chicken stock over the chicken and veggies. Everyone loves how the veggies soaks up the flavour of the stock and the chicken.

Question is, can I make the veggies alone as a side dish, without the chicken? If I simmer/braise the veggies in chicken broth for an hour or two, would I get the same taste and softness?

Appreciate your help!
