recipe: chicken with lemon and rosemary

daycare Thanksgiving 2016for my little one’s daycare thanksgiving party, each family is to bring a dish for potluck. in addition though, i have to make a complete meal for the little one since i don’t know what ingredients other parents will use in their dishes. since we will be making a whole chicken for our family thanksgiving, i didn’t want to make another whole chicken for the school thanksgiving party.

luckily my pressure cooker allows me to make a dish so easily that i can throw everything in and not think about it yet know the dish will be delish!
