Nice looking chicken, right? It filled the house with incredible aromas as it roasted in the oven, garnished with herbs and lemon.
Well, no. This is actually a Costco rotisserie chicken. So sue us.
Listen, you can't cook every day, so we bought a Costco bird (you know how yummy they are), tossed it in a roasting pan, added some herbs and bit of seared lemon and voila! - instant visual roast chicken bonanza.
So, is it really lying to present it this way? I don't think so - in fact you could serve this to company and they'd never be the wiser.
Well, there's not much to say about the food that hasn't already been said, but the lesson I learned from this is that you can take store bought food and very easily dress it up to be presentable to company.
Nothing particularly creative here, but it's effective.
