The chicken is a pastured chicken which is what we only use. Pastured chicken is so much better than store bought chicken. There are no antibiotics, hormones, and can roam around in a field. The feed these chickens are given to supplement their diet comes from a non-GMO grain that is specially grown for the farm.
I had some fresh thyme that a friend gave me (I love the herbs my friend gives me).
I also used a Chicken Herb Rub that came out of the cookbook "The Grassfed Gourmet". The recipe is great on chicken, whether it is whole or just parts.
Here is the recipe:
1 tablespoon coarse salt
1 tablespoon freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon dried thyme
2 tablespoons dried oregano
All you need to do is rub it all over the chicken. I also drizzled a little olive oil over the chicken.

Along with dinner I did a small salad, which had lettuce, tomato, cucumber, mushrooms and a little blue cheese with a homemade Italian dressing.
I also did fresh carrots that I steamed. After they came out of the steamer I added a little butter and a little bit of honey.

I also cooked a brown basmati rice to go along with everything.
