  • That chicken looks strange very different from the one we have in France, the breasts muscles looks oversized and the muscles on the legs too, how old is it and what kind is it?

  • Always remove feathers and cut off the tale BEFORE you roast.

  • Nooooo the tail which everyone calls it's 'butt' for some reason when it is actually just the tail muscle, is actually some of the most tender meat on a chicken!!

  • You should put this recipe on the new website.

  • If I wasn’t feeling the tomatoes are they necessary for this particular recipe? That is to say could I just use the potatoes? Or other route vegetables?

  • Open fire and a Lodge 16 deep camp oven. Onion, carrots, celery, garlic, mushrooms, and green beans. High heat for 30? minutes, and finish low and slow.Magnifique, Y'all.

  • The link to the recipe and list of ingredient is broken

  • Rotary spit is still the best, but roasted chicken is always good to

  • The chicken tail has soo much flavour. Can’t believe you cut it off. Apart from that looks yummy

  • I watch A LOT of YouTube cooking. I think this format should be more popular. Pure cooking, no flexing, showboating, bragging etc.

    Stephanie D 21/10/2022 am1:24
  • A quick advice. If you put salt and pepper all over your bird (chicken, turkey, duck, etc) and let it sit in your fridge overnight, you'll have it well salted at the time of roasting and it'll develop better crust. That's how we usually do it.

    Артём Мартынович 21/10/2022 am1:24
  • I guess the turning is to reproduce what happens in rotisseries where the chickens slowly rotate.

    Anton Boludo 21/10/2022 am1:24
  • Hello is it possible to cook Turkey this way?

    Odile 21/10/2022 am1:24
  • What happened to the Bay Leaves? And, why wash/leave the potatoes in water prior to roasting? Thanks in advance.

  • This came out really good and lovely, easily a repeat one for meals!

    V P 21/10/2022 am1:24
  • I tried the 3-stage roasting method and my results were amazing! All parts of the bird turned out juicy and tender. I love how fast and easy it was to pull together a complete meal (just added a salad).

    Using a bit less tomato, I subbed small chunks of kabocha squash, turnip and mushrooms in place of potatoes. Of course, I added onions and garlic. Also tucked plenty of herb butter paste under the skin, made with anything I could find left my garden and fridge. Made a quick gravy/reduction with pan juice.

    Got lots of favorable feedback. Always happy when my 95 year old parents enjoy a tasty dinner!

  • Love your channel. I’m a little bit uncomfortable with all your produce around a raw chicken though.

    Chris Wright 21/10/2022 am1:24
  • I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve cooked this recipe. Absolutely delicious.

  • Are you still in Australia? If so, may I ask, why?

  • I have been doing this for 53 years or since I got married to an Rhodesian from British heritage. I'm so surprised to see how many people are surprised at how to roast a chicken, but glad that the younger generation are learning this from this channel.
