Re: "My Favorite Simple Roast Chicken"--should the house be filled with smoke?!

In the midst of roasting a chicken a la the epicurious recipe above. It's a 4.5 lb chicken and it has been cooking for approx. 1 hour 10 min now. We've been playing Wii games and only just noticed that the entire house is getting full of smoke. The stove vent is on the highest setting; we've opened every window in the house. Eyes are stinging a bit and I'm afraid the smoke detector will go off.

Is this how it's SUPPOSED to be??? Am I doing something wrong? It's only the chicken, with S&P.

I'm afraid to let the chicken keep cooking but I'm wondering if I have to double the time (original recipe for 2-3 lb chicken says to roast for 50-60 min).

Want to stay up to date with this post?
