Lodge Pre-Seasoned Skillet
Lodge Brush, Scrapper, Conditioning Oil:

Serves 4


For Chicken:
1 whole 4lb (1800g), Kosher chicken
3 tbsp (45 ml) butter
1 garlic clove, minced
½ tsp salt
1 tsp (5 ml) fresh rosemary, minced
freshly cracked peper

For Vegetables:
1 Vidalia onion, cut into chunks
2 red potatoes, skin on, cut into chunks
2 sweet potatoes, skin on, cut into chunks
3 garlic cloves, sliced
2 tbsp (30 ml) olive oil
1 tsp (5 ml) herbs de Provence

For Pan Sauce
¼ cup (60 ml) white wine
1 tsp (5 ml) Dijon mustard
½-3/4 cups (120ml-180ml) chicken broth
freshly cracked pepper

Preheat oven to 350F/(176C)

Allow chicken to come to room temperature. About 15 mins or so.

Melt butter, add garlic, salt, rosemary, and pepper. Set aside.

Insert a spoon between the breast meat and skin to loosen the pocket. Spoon in 2 spoons of the butter mixture inside the pocket of each breast. Massage skin to distribute butter over breast meat. Reserve about ½ tbsp (7 ml). of butter in order to brush the top of the chicken. Place chicken in a 10” (25 cm) cast iron pan. Tie legs together with butchers twine. Remove any excess fatty skin at the bottom with kitchen shears. This is so you don’t end up with a greasy pan sauce.

Brush skin of chicken all over with remaining butter. Sprinkle skin with salt and pepper to taste.

In a second cast iron skillet, layer the onions, and both potatoes. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper to taste and herbs de Provence.

Place both skillets in the oven for 1 hour and 30 mins. Every 20 mins or so spoon the pan juices of the chicken over of the top of the chicken, and add a spoonful or so to the vegetables too.

Once the vegetable start to cook down and become tender you can begin to stir them occasionally, adding the chicken pan juices often.

Once the chicken is done, and its internal temperature has reached 165F. Remove the skillets from the oven. Transfer chicken to a cutting board. Allow the chicken to rest for 10 mins.

While resting prepare the pan sauce. Deglaze the pan with the wine, heat until reduced by 1/3. Add the mustard and whisk. Slowly add ½ cut of chicken broth until desired consistency. Season with freshly cracked pepper.

Carve chicken and place on a platter. Spoon the pan sauce over the chicken. Serve with the vegetables. Dinner is served!

  • I made this today for company and it was the best chicken I’ve ever tasted! I got so many compliments. I used the wrong kind of potatoes and they turned out very tough but the chicken was so good that I was heartily forgiven 😂

  • This is the best YouTube recipe for roast chicken I’ve seen for several reasons. Number one it’s simple and traditional. A lot of these New Age recipes try to do flashy things like shoving lemons and fruits and stuff into the cavity. It is purely fashion and actually makes the pan juice bitter. I am also a huge fan of using cast iron and having a simultaneous veg side dish amd gravy. Balance is important. She’s also choosing the correct onions and potatoes for this recipe. The subtle nuances make all the difference in the world. The icing on the cake is low and slow. Even the celebrity chefs are doing it wrong and you risk not cooking the dark meat well and having pink or red surprises when you cut it open. I trust my eyes more than I trust a thermometer that could be faulty or broken. Thank you for this!

  • I just found this channel last week. Right now I have this dinner in the oven. It smells and looks amazing. I've also made the chicken piccata and that was amazing. I made your roasted smashed baby red potatoes, amazing. And a parsley and lemon pasta dish. I forget what you called it. However, it was amazing. Thanks to you we've been eating real good around here. Thanks.

  • What a wonderful way to truss a chicken! I couldn't live without my cast iron skillets…I don't know how to fry, etc. with anything other than a cast iron skillet. Small ones are essential for cornbread as far as I'm concerned. Diane in NC

  • I like my chicken 🐓 crisp skin!

    Stylish 101 24/10/2022 am9:22
  • My favorite Sunday night dinner…I add canned mushrooms to the pan sauce, and a touch of almond creme or half and half…YUM! I also add sage on top of the bird…and sometimes vary the spices I use. All so GOOD!

  • This meal is absolutely everything you could ask for. The amount of work is minimal, but the outcome is like you slaved all day in the kitchen. I made this for my wife for our 28th anniversary, it was a hit. She raved about the flavor of both the chicken and the veggies. I thank you for helping make my anniversary a success!
