Roasted Chicken Breast

Crown Recipe 

Juicy Roasted Chicken CrownThis is a double roasted chicken breast or crown recipe. The crown being the two breasts together with the main bone still in.
It's a great way to cook chicken because when you cook a whole bird there's aways the problem of the breasts cooking before the legs are ready, and so ending up with either a dry breast or an uncooked leg.
The Mediterranean stuffing goes perfectly with the crispy skin and moist tender meat.
Also, by placing the stuffing under the skin you get a self basting bird that needs no attention at all.
Another great Mediterranean Diet recipe.
