Fall is the perfect time for entertaining. The shift in the weather has me craving hearty, comforting food. Rosemary Chicken with Roasted Vegetables is the kind of dish I love to make, for dinner guests and for my family.
Preparation is key for these kinds of tasty meals, and our Foodsaver® is the solution. My Rosemary Chicken is all about the perfect marinade. The Foodsaver ® FM5330 vacuum sealer from Bed Bath & Beyond has become my new best friend, because it helps save time, marinating this chicken in minutes instead of hours. I prepared the marinade, placed it in a FoodSaver® bag with the chicken, sealed it, and refrigerated it. The rosemary and herbs flavored the chicken in a complex and delicious way, and the marinade kept the chicken moist. A gourmet meal can be ready in very little time. which is important to us because our family has incredibly busy schedules during the school year.
As a chef, I understand the importance of safe food storage. I often buy food in bulk in order to save money (in this case I happened to get a great deal on chicken halves). When I learned that FoodSaver® was the number one vacuum sealing solution in the U.S. because they are the best for long term freezer storage, I knew this was the right product for our family. FoodSaver® Heat-Seal Bags make meal prep safer, as you don’t have to worry about bags leaking. They also block out the air, preventing freezer burn.I also use my Foodsaver ® vacuum sealer for leftovers, as it keeps food fresh five times longer than freezer bags.
Rosemary Chicken with Roasted Vegetables is a great fall meal: savory, comforting, and delicious. And thanks to Foodsaver ® , it is easy to make and easy to store. That means great leftovers!
