Last week I saw this picture of a Nicoise salad over on Canelle et Vanille. It looked so pretty and doable. We had some good friends over on Saturday night and I played copycat. It went over big. My friend said, "It is almost pretty enough to take a picture of!" I had to admit that I already did. :)

Check out my pretty roasted chicken! It made me sooooo very happy to see that lovely crisped up skin. I varied the recipe a little (as is my usual) but mostly followed this.
So I hate picking a chicken carcass, but I did my best. Knowing I had left plenty behind, I threw the whole picked over birdie into a pot of boiling water. Once it was chickeny, I added brown rice, carrots, tomatoes and the chicken I had picked off back in. Mmmmm....chicken soup for dinner tonight!
