Day 39 - F&H (Food&Happiness): Chicken & Vegetable Cartoccio

An easy, healthy, tasty and recipe for you!
My Grandma was really happy with it (what a result!)

Ingredients for 4 people:
1 medium or 2 small chickens
2 small courgettes
10/15 cherry tomatoes
2/3 big potatoes
1 lemon
Any other Mediterranean spices you like :)

How to do it?
Wash, peal and cut all the vegetables in small/medium pieces and mix all of them with the herbs and some salt.
Wash the chicken, put some rosemary and salt in its belly. Put the chicken in a pan for a few minutes, when it gets some color, you can stop. While the chicken is in the pan, prepare a layer of foil and lay down all the vegetables. Then you'll put the chicken(s) on the top. Put some (I said not exaggerate!) extra virgin olive oil and half a lemon on the top of it.
Close the foil carefully.
Put everything in the preheated oven at 230/240° for 1h.
Once you open the foil, see if it's ready. If not, leave it open, put it back in the oven with the grill on. Leave it there 5/10 minutes. It will add some crispy and color.

It will be DELICIOUS! :)
Enjoy it and tell me what you think of it!
