Herb Garlic Roast Chicken

Linda Larsen
This simple Hanukkah menu is festive and easy, streamlining lots of the traditional recipes with no loss of taste. A roasted chicken is flavored with garlic and herbs, while potato latkes are made super easy by starting with refrigerated hash brown potatoes. The crisp latkes are served with a sour cream and green onion topping.

Doughnuts are traditional for this celebratory meal. Why not make them really easy by starting with refrigerated dough? And I love using applesauce, another traditional food for Hanukkah, in tender and flavorful cookies.

Enjoy the Festival of Lights!

Simple Hanukkah Menu

  • Herb and Garlic Roast Chicken
    This recipe makes a juicy and tender chicken with crisp skin. You can use any combination of herbs you'd like.
  • Easy Potato Latkes
    You can use frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed, in place of the refrigerated variety, but I think the refrigerated type tastes fresher. Flavor these latkes with herbs if you'd like, but I like them with just onion and garlic.
  • Sour Cream and Onion Topping
    Serve this cool and rich mixture on top of the crisp latkes for the perfect finishing touch.
  • Pear and Greens Salad
    This is my go-to salad for holiday entertaining. Everyone loves it, it's easy to make, and it's beautiful too.
  • Asparagus with Pesto Tomatoes
    This easy side dish provides a jot of color and fresh flavor in the middle of all these rich foods.
  • Super Simple Doughnuts
    These doughnuts taste like the real thing! Toss them in cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar instead of the glaze if you'd like. And don't forget to fry the doughnut holes too!
  • Applesauce Granola Cookies
    And finally, these easy and delicious cookies are perfect for finishing this meal worthy of a celebration.
