Roasted Chicken with Balsamic Vinaigrette

submitted by Dara Singleton
Recipe Courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 T. Dijon Mustard
2 T. Fresh Lemon Juice
2 garlic cloves chopped
2 T. Olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 (4 pound) whole chicken, cut into pieces
1/2 cup low salt chicken broth
1 tsp lemon zest
1 T chopped fresh parsley leaves

Whisk vinegar, mustard, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper, in small bowl to blend. Combine the vinaigrette and chicken pieces in a large resealable plastic bag; seal the bag and toss to coat. Refrigerate, turning the chicken pieces occasionally, for at least two hours and up to one day.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Remove chicken from the bag and arrange the chicken pieces on a large greased baking dish. Roast until the chicken is just cooked through, about 1 hour. If your chicken browns too quickly cover with foil for the remaining cooling time. Transfer the chicken to a serving platter. Place the baking dish on a burner over medium low heat. Whisk the chicken broth into the pan drippings, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the baking sheet with a wooden spoon and mixing them into the broth and the pan drippings. Drizzle the pan drippings over the chicken. Sprinkle the lemon zest and parsley over the chicken, and serve.
