With only a few minutes prep, roast chicken can be popped into the oven and forgotten until the timer beeps. A roast chicken goes a long way for feeding a family. You can serve it sliced with vegetables or make some comforting chicken soup. Make a chicken pot pie or a chicken salad sandwich. Add it to a salad or shred it for chicken enchiladas, and the list goes on and on.
