Roast Chicken Five Ways If memory serves, Roast Chicken was one Julia Child's favorite dishes, and it is mine too!

If memory serves, Roast Chicken was one Julia Child’s favorite dishes, and it is mine too!

For all roast chicken lovers out there, here are very simple ways to treat yourself, getting a different and delicious dish each time. Make sure you never run out of my dry spice rub—it’s fabulous and so versatile. A whole roast chicken makes for a more dramatic presentation, but pieces will work just as well. Just remember the golden rule for roast chicken and every bird: Breast side down!Turn it over to get its final beautiful amber color only in the last quarter of cooking time.
Just one last important detail: Because I use Kosher poultry , which is pre-salted, my poultry and meat dishes do not include salt as one of the ingredients. Please add salt to taste to these recipes if you are using conventional poultry.

Basic Roast Chicken

The nothing chicken. That’s right, I am not forgetting anything! Just the chicken, ma’am! Still my children’s favorite!

8 serving pieces chicken (2 per person, 16 pieces total: legs, thighs, half breasts), or 2 whole chickens

Preheat the oven to 425°F.

If you are using chicken pieces: Place the pieces skin side down in a baking dish in one layer. Bake uncovered for 40 minutes. Take out the breasts, they should be done. Turn the dark pieces over and bake another 15 minutes. Serve hot. Delicious at room temperature too.

If you are using whole chicken: Bake breast side down for 1 hour, turn over, and bake 15 more minutes. Makes 8 servings.
