Over these next weeks, we will be sharing a few of Kelsey’s favorite go-to recipes. Be sure to try her delicious Moroccan-Spiced Roast Chicken with Creamy Cilantro Sauce.

“The first dish my mom taught me to make was a roast chicken, and I’ve been making variations of that classic ever since. This recipe is simple enough to prepare for an everyday meal and reliable enough to be a standby for special occasions like having the in-laws over or inviting your boss to dinner. The potatoes roast along with the chicken, resulting in an automatic side dish– though Israeli couscous is a delicious accompaniment as well. This particular version of roast chicken has fantastic flavor thanks to essential pantry spices, which provide great dimension. The cool yogurt-cilantro sauce is finger-licking good. I like this flavor line-up so much that I use the same spice combination and creamy sauce with pork tenderloin that I throw on the grill– when I don’t want to heat up the kitchen.”
