Roasted Chicken and Fall Vegetables!

For me, the fall leaves provide the colors for a warm and welcoming meal. Try making this amazing Golden Roast Chicken with Herbed Butter and Fall Vegetables. Chicken is always a family favorite, and the herbed butter sauce really makes this dish extra special and comforting as the weather cools.
