There is nothing better than the smells of chicken roasting in the oven and filling the house with all delicious aromas, and this one is even better because it is stuffed with butter, herbs and chickpeas. My family absolutely loves this meal and I love making it. It's so easy and delicious and looks so fancy. The perfect family dinner.




  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. 

  2. Chop herbs and set aside.

  3. Mix chickpeas with a pinch of herbs, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper, then mix butter with remaining herbs and salt. Stuff chicken with chickpeas and place in a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  4. In between skin and meat stuff butter and herbs throughout the entire chicken.
  5. Cook for 1 hour or until chicken is fully cooked.
  6. Remove chickpeas and place in a serving bowl and carve chicken and serve on a serving tray.

  7. ENJOY!!!!

Gluten Free Mom Colorado

I am married to the most amazing man, Tommy. I am the mother of three beautiful children Landon, Finn, and Daisy. For years I have been helping friends, family and others navigate the life of gluten-free living. I grew up in a gluten-free house, my mom and both brothers were diagnosed with Celiac Disease when I was young. My mom did an amazing job making everything from scratch in a gluten free kitchen. When I had my first child Landon my world was changed. He was born at 24 weeks because I have a short cervix. The doctor told us that he had a slim chance of survival and that his life would be plagued with severe complications. He survived and has minimal complications due to his prematurity, but when Landon was two he started getting rashes all over his body and he would constantly be sick. My mom advised me to get Landon tested for Celiac Disease. This was the beginning of my true GF journey. Shortly after he was diagnosed, I decided to go off gluten as well. Although I do not have Celiac Disease, I have found that I feel 100% better eliminating gluten from my diet. Recently Finn was having some issues with his legs and knees hurting. The doctor told me to take Finn off gluten to see if it was causing the inflammation and pain. Sure enough once we changed his diet the symptoms went away. We have Celiac Disease and gluten intolerance on both sides of the family. My sister-in-law and niece were recently diagnosed and my Grandma recently took gluten out of her diet due to an autoimmune disease. We are in a fortunate position that both of our families understand the purpose of living a gluten-free lifestyle. I am on a mission to help people create amazing gluten-free recipes and to see that this diagnosis is not a curse, but can actually be delicious.
