My housemates and I usually host 8-10 people every sunday for dinner. This week is my turn, and after a long week at work, I've scaled back my ambitions significantly, so no big indian feast.
What I would love to do is roast a chicken or two and have an old fashioned supper. I've only ever used the Thomas Keller recipe, and I love it; but can i do this for a crowd-- especially if i want to use organic chicken, which i've found tend to be smaller? There will be sides, of course, but this would be the main event, and it would have to feed anywhere from 7-10 people.
I'm thinking 2 five pound chickens, if I can find them. Would that be enough? and how will that change the suggested time, if at all?
