     Tis the season to rediscover the culinary secret of oven-roasted chicken. Oven roasting warms the home with heavenly aromas that awaken appetites and linger long after you've cleared the table. In addition to the subtle comforts, this simple cooking method creates a nutritious, wholesome meal the whole family will enjoy.

      With today's variety of pre-seasoned, ready-to-bake fresh meats, it's now easier than ever to roast a picture perfect main dish without the guesswork or dishes. One to try: Bake It Easy, Gold'n Plump's line of fresh chicken products available in the refrigerated meat section. Ranging from seasoned whole chickens to restaurant-inspired stuffed breasts to seasoned popular pieces, each product comes in ready-to-bake packaging. There's no touch, no prep and no clean up involved, but they're packed with made-from-scratch taste.

      Your sumptuous main dish will cook beautifully without further fuss, giving you more time to gather all the trimmings for the perfect meal. Add a side of Steamed Vegetables with Sherry-Mustard Sauce, a salad and some dinner rolls for an elegant yet quick-to-prepare menu for entertaining.

      Steamed Vegetables with Sherry-Mustard Sauce
2 cups broccoli florets
1 cup cauliflower florets
1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon dry sherry
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon pepper, or to taste

     Steam broccoli and cauliflower over boiling water in covered pot for about 6 minutes or until crisp-tender. Stir together remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Taste and adjust seasoning. To serve, arrange vegetables on serving plate and drizzle with sauce.

      Tip: Substitute steamed asparagus spears and carrot strips for a colorful variation. For a simple shortcut, place vegetables and 1/4 cup water into a medium microwave-proof dish. Cover and microwave on high for about 5 minutes. Drain well.
