Take a culinary trip to Tuscany with this delicious Tuscan roasted chicken recipe. Seasoned with white wine, oregano, and lots of rosemary, this chicken is full of flavor.

Massaging it with a few tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil ensures that the meat stays moist, and two whole chili peppers add just enough kick to liven everything up. For the best flavor, I recommend using Calabrian chili, a small but flavorful pepper from the Calabrian region of Italy.

You can recreate this recipe by going to your butcher and getting the freshest organic, free-range chicken, then adding fresh organic veggies and roasting them all together in your oven.

    This is my favorite roast chicken recipe! I love the rosemary and Calabrian chili flavors. I used some of the oil from the jar of Calabrian chilis to coat the chicken and vegetables for some extra kick!
