Lemon & Wine Dutch Oven Chicken

Recently I’ve made a few Dutch oven meals because it really is the perfect way to warm up when the weather is chilly! Taking on a whole chicken isn’t as scary as it seems, the hardest part for me is carving it. My dad is kind of an expert with carving, he taught me to start […]
