A whole roasted chicken is a dish so basic that it appeals to almost everyone, yet so important that chefs are judged by it. The CHOW Test Kitchen's Lisa Lavery uses our Basic Whole Roasted Chicken recipe to show that you don't need a tricky technique or fancy brine to get crispy skin and juicy, flavorful meat.
Pimiento cheese may not be one of the typical ingredients you reach for when you’re ready to roast a chicken, but hey—don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. This cooking method produces an insanely succulent, juicy bird with golden-crisp skin.
Maximize flavor and minimize cleanup with this sheet pan dinner. The sheet pan quadruples your surface area, letting you roast items in less time and with more delightfully crispy edges. This dish is one you’ll want to put on repeat.
