Citrus Herb Roasted Vegetables & Chicken

Citrus herb seasoning is a bright and sunny blend of orange and lemon zest with garden-fresh herbs like thyme, oregano, basil, rosemary, sage and fennel.

Citrus herb seasoning helps boost the flavors in ordinary foods to make them extraordinary.

The seasoning is easy to make. Simply add 1 1/2 teaspoons each of lemon and orange zest to a small jar with 1 teaspoon each of dried rosemary, sage and fennel seeds.

Next add 1 tablespoon each of dried thyme and oregano with 2 tablespoons of dried basil and mix together with a teaspoon of Himalayan salt (makes about 1/3 cup of citrus herb seasoning).

This zesty blend of herbs and citrus zest is well suited for many uses in the kitchen.

Use it to make a vinaigrette, use as a rub with salmon, chicken or pork. Or season with vegetables before roasting.

Cook’s Notes

If you want to use the citrus herb seasoning to roast the vegetables only, add vegetables to pan and roast for 30 minutes in the 400 degree oven.

Place baking pan back into oven and cook another 30 minutes. This will insure chicken meat is cooked to 165 degrees internal temperature and will roast the vegetables.

I just had a friend send me seeds to grow some myself. I will have to try this recipe because it might have been the way they were cooked that was the problem. I will have to try this recipe.
