Give your basic roast chicken a boost with a symphony of lemon, herbs, and spices – and a recipe that feeds a family of four for less than $15.

Chef Jorge Montes, owner and executive chef of Roho Kitchen, shared his secret for succulent lemon herb chicken and red bliss potatoes with Money Talks News founder Stacy Johnson. It’s easy and flavorful! Watch the latest installment of our cooking series, and then read on for the recipe.

The lively combination of lemon, herbs, and spices gives the chicken a delicious and crisp skin while imparting amazing flavor into the potatoes. You can usually find chicken on sale at your local grocery, and keep an eye out for potato discounts. The ingredients for this meal can be found for less than $15 at most local grocery stores or farmers’ markets.

To keep the chicken as juicy as possible, take this tip from the pros: Make sure you let the chicken rest for about 15 minutes after you take it out of the oven before you carve it.

Bon appétit!
