IMG_1869This chicken will make your mouth happy!

I absolutely love Fall! Over the past couple of weeks I have been harvesting my herb garden by cutting basil, sage, oregano, and thyme, and tying them into big bunches to dry.IMG_1868After they are dried I use an herb grinder.

And then put them into cute little herb jars.

The aroma is heavenly; so intense compared to store bought.

After bringing the herbs in from the garden and tying them into bundles, there are tons of loose leaves that don’t make it into the bundles. Bonanza! Can you imagine how much it would cost to buy that many herbs at the store? Don’t let them go to waste. Gather them up and make this delicious dish 🙂

Tuscan Lemon Herb Buried Chicken
