Roast Chicken on Bed of Potatoes (I saw Ina do it) - Help!

Aloo0628 | Dec 7, 2007 08:44 AM

Awhile ago, I saw an episode of barefoot contessa where Ina roasted a chicken on top of a bed of potatoes, and talked about how yummy the potatoes would be because they soak up all of the juices from the chicken as they roast. This sounds amazing, and I'd like to try it, but I can't find the recipe or episode. Can anyone help me out by giving me a link to that episode or recipe?

If not, can you give me your own tips for roasting chicken this way? I usually roast my chicken a la Nigella - stuff half a lemon up its bum (and some herbs), smear some butter or drizzle some oil on its breast, and roast according to its weight. Yum. Should I just do the same thing with the chicken, but place a bed of potato pieces underneath the chicken?
