Categories     Dinner     Chicken     Poultry     Roast     Quick & Easy     Sugar Conscious     Wheat/Gluten-Free     Peanut Free     Tree Nut Free     Soy Free     No Sugar Added

Yield 2-4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 5

One 2- to 3-pound farm-raised chicken
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons minced thyme (optional)
Unsalted butter
Dijon mustard

Steps:

  • Preheat the oven to 450°F. Rinse the chicken, then dry it very well with paper towels, inside and out. The less it steams, the drier the heat, the better.
  • Salt and pepper the cavity, then truss the bird. Trussing is not difficult, and if you roast chicken often, it's a good technique to feel comfortable with. When you truss a bird, the wings and legs stay close to the body; the ends of the drumsticks cover the top of the breast and keep it from drying out. Trussing helps the chicken to cook evenly, and it also makes for a more beautiful roasted bird.
  • Now, salt the chicken-I like to rain the salt over the bird so that it has a nice uniform coating that will result in a crisp, salty, flavorful skin (about 1 tablespoon). When it's cooked, you should still be able to make out the salt baked onto the crisp skin. Season to taste with pepper.
  • Place the chicken in a sauté pan or roasting pan and, when the oven is up to temperature, put the chicken in the oven. I leave it alone-I don't baste it, I don't add butter; you can if you wish, but I feel this creates steam, which I don't want. Roast it until it's done, 50 to 60 minutes. Remove it from the oven and add the thyme, if using, to the pan. Baste the chicken with the juices and thyme and let it rest for 15 minutes on a cutting board.
  • Remove the twine. Separate the middle wing joint and eat that immediately. Remove the legs and thighs. I like to take off the backbone and eat one of the oysters, the two succulent morsels of meat embedded here, and give the other to the person I'm cooking with. But I take the chicken butt for myself. I could never understand why my brothers always fought over that triangular tip-until one day I got the crispy, juicy fat myself. These are the cook's rewards. Cut the breast down the middle and serve it on the bone, with one wing joint still attached to each. The preparation is not meant to be superelegant. Slather the meat with fresh butter. Serve with mustard on the side and, if you wish, a simple green salad. You'll start using a knife and fork, but finish with your fingers, because it's so good.

Provided by My Food and Family

Categories     Home

Time 1h40m

Yield Makes 8 servings.

Number Of Ingredients 7

1 (4-1/2-lb.) roasting chicken
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. salt
1 medium lemon, washed
4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 Tbsp. dried Italian seasoning
1/2 cup KRAFT Zesty Italian Dressing

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Use the tip of a sharp knife to separate the chicken skin from the meat in the chicken breast and tops of the legs. Sprinkle chicken both inside and out with the pepper and salt. Place in 13x9-inch baking dish.
  • Grate the lemon; mix the peel with cream cheese and Italian seasoning. Use a small spoon or your fingers to carefully stuff the cream cheese mixture under the chicken skin, pushing the cream cheese mixture carefully toward the legs, being careful to not tear the skin.
  • Cut the lemon in half; squeeze both halves into small bowl. Add dressing; beat with wire wire whisk until well blended. Drizzle evenly over chicken. Place the squeezed lemon halves inside the chicken cavity. Insert an ovenproof meat thermometer into thickest part of 1 of the chicken's thighs.
  • Bake 1 hour 30 min. or until chicken is no longer pink in center (165°F), basting occasionally with the pan juices.

THOMAS KELLER'S FAVORITE ROAST CHICKEN



Thomas Keller's Favorite Roast Chicken image

Those of you who know your Chef's, must be familiar with the fabulous Thomas Keller. Also, I am a BIG fan of high-heat cooking ( I have a great high heat turkey recipe posted here #145046) and that is how this is prepared. It is taken from his book, and his comments are in the directions. I was going to remove them, but then I decided it is part of the charm of this great chicken meal. This recipe is some work, but well worth the effort! Cooks Note: To truss chicken, place it on a tray with legs toward you. Tuck wing tips under bird. Cut piece of kitchen twine about 3 feet long and center it on top of neck end of breast. Lift neck end of bird and pull twine down around wings and under chicken, then bring ends up over breast toward you and knot twine, pulling it tight to plump breasts. Bring ends of twine around ends of drumstick and straight up. Tie as before to pull drumsticks together and form a compact bird. Tie again to secure knot.

Number Of Ingredients 5

2 -3 lbs free-range chicken

  • Roast it until it's done (165 degrees in the thickest part of the thigh), 50 to 60 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and add thyme to pan. Baste chicken with juices and thyme and let it sit for 15 minutes on cutting board.
  • Remove twine. Discard wing tip. Separate middle wing joint and eat that immediately. Remove legs and thighs.

  • Wash the chicken rapidly inside and out with hot water and pat thoroughly dry. For easier carving, cut out and discard the wishbone.
