Perfecting one essential recipe was arguably my tipping point between “girl who cooks” and domestic goddess. And it’s arguably one of the easiest recipes to master, so we can all be goddesses at our own houses! A cute little roasted chicken is not only delicious, but also insanely simple to make, and makes a really impressive centerpiece. Until you carve it, of course.
After several trials, (and more than several errors), I've come to two fail proof conclusions. All that’s really important when roasting the perfect chicken is hardware and oven temperature. A shallow roasting pan and an oven heated to a dazzling 425 degrees always renders the perfect result to me.
