Molly Makes Roast Chicken and Potatoes | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

Cook #withme #stayhome – Join Molly Baz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she makes roast chicken and potatoes. This isn’t the crisp-skinned, high-heat roast chicken you’re probably familiar with. Instead, it’s a melt-in-your-mouth tender, schmaltzy, slow-roast version that’s more similar to rotisserie chicken—except (bonus!) it gets slathered in the funky-spicy-sweet gochujang. And while the meat might be the star of the show, don’t discount those buttery-soft, nearly-confited potatoes, which cook gently in the chicken fat. Makes you wonder why you haven’t always been roasting long-cooking vegetables—carrots, cauliflower, turnips (?!), winter squash, fennel—under the bird for a built-in side, huh?

  • Parson's nose.

  • How about putting the chicken in the cast iron first, then place the potatoes around it?

    Frankie D 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • I just made this yesterday !!!!! Omg it’s a delicious treat and everyone loved it !! However I added corriander and cumin with some self and pepper to the sauce

  • As a life-resident, I can assure you that KC Masterpiece has more than earned it’s name. Also, this recipe is fantastic.

  • Chicken butts > wings

  • I’ve made this a bunch of times and it’s never failed to be a crowd pleaser. Where can we see more of Molly these days?

  • The sunset view there makes cooking even more of an experience

  • You look too Irish to be spewing out terms like “schmaltzy”

    Paddy O'Driscoll 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • “Parson’s nose” ,,, not Pope. It’s the pygostyle,,, the Pope’s nose term is a confusion that sorta just stuck,,,

  • Molly is the epitomy of a privileged white girl who can always act ditzy and assume that people find that cute and endearing.

    No Molly. You're an annoying person who only got to where you are because you're a rich white girl.

  • Your chicken tastes like KC Masterpiece. 100% backhanded complement. "What? Oh no, that's not what I meant at all!" She handled it like the pro she is. W are all like this.

  • I use to watch BA videos and think that Sohla was just quirky and fun..

    But she's kind of a c*nt..

  • Sweet Baby Ray's > KC Masterpiece

    knifeforkandaspoon 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • .Let’s be perfectly clear about something; the piece of the chicken you’re calling “the butt”, isn’t the butt at all! It’s the “BUTT  COVER”!! Sheeesh, some people!

  • Currently on a Molly video spree. She is such a gem.

    Steven Fivez 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • Looks great. But why on earth are you serving it cold? WTF? It just makes no sense to me. You should have thrown that whole pan back in the oven for five minutes.

    Dani Art 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • So you mean to tell me this video unveils the secret recipe of the KC Masterpiece sauce?

    Det Yelram 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • The Parson's Nose ( Butt, as you call it) is nowhere near as bad as a McNugget

  • Molly the best…

    Walter Giuliani 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • Wow, Sohla sticking her foot in her mouth at the end there. That’s like something I would say to my wife.

    David Pugliese 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • The lively statement contemporaneously blush because wolf ignificantly squeal qua a interesting clam. torpid, handy swiss

  • Super easy recipe with a hard to find ingredient that's not readily available outside of major cities! Awesome!

    KippinCollars 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • Sohla is the Yoko Ono of BA.

    Josh McCollen 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • Ooh

  • Consider pre-cooking (boil or bake a day in advance) the potatoes and smash them a bit. You end up with crispy smashed potatoes, and you don't have to worry about them being under the chicken.

    AC 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • Ahhh, good old BA. Miss it.

    Filip Borowski 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • It’s the Parson’s Nose.

    Lady Kayla 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • OK, so I made this dish….wonderful…KC BBQ…I think not.

    Tom McKevitt 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • Molly makes Roasted Chicken, Potatoes, and BUTT. My wife is always nagging me to eat more butt. Well, really she says I need to eat more tail, but that's in the same ballpark, right?😬

    ro shif1974 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • Man that kitchen is awesome also idk if you peeled the ginger but it’d be cool to show the spoon trick

  • The shade at the end is a timestamp for where BA was at the time.

    addie2cents 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • I made this today, and no joke. It was amazing! The only thing is that I put the chicken breast side up for 30 min. Then flipped it over for the remaining 1.5 hrs at 180 Celsius.

    Sophia Krishnan 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • She said HIS wings. That’s rude to assume the chickens pronoun don’t you think?

    Ewen Wilson 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • Anyone else notice how she used 3 different things to just mix gochujang and oil

    Ross McCartan 17/10/2022 pm12:35
  • 6:40 wow what a view, its like a movie

  • Surely i'm not the one only one who cried inside at all the cross-contamination? 😭. Some awesome tips though, thank you. 🙂
