Rosemary Balsamic Chicken with Stuff

Mixed some EVOO and Balsamic Vinegar and drizzled the chicken and then hit with salt.  In the cast iron for 1 1/2hrs at 350°.  No egg pic cause I wasn’t planning on documenting it until I got it inside and could really see it.  

And the roasted cauliflower with carrots and radishes 

The cauliflower was meh but mostly my fault because it could’ve cooked longer.

  • Cherry wood for smoke?

    Thanks guys!!

    Cherry wood for smoke?

    No smoke just straight up RW.  The Balsamic carmelizes to make that awesome color.
