Pastrami Roast Chicken | Hit The Kitch with Molly Baz

Hit The Kitch with Molly Baz as she makes the iconic Pastrami Roast Chicken from her NYT bestseller, Cook This Book!

Most people shy away from tackling a whole roasted chicken when in reality, the roast chicken is one of the simplest, most hands off chicken tricks in the book. Crank the oven, rub her down and let her roast in until golden brown and schmaltzy. Tune in to this ep and let Molly teach you the rest!

  • I'm always entranced by Molly. But at the beginning of the video, she touched raw chicken and then proceeded to contaminate her kitchen.

    Jazzy Rivera 22/10/2022 pm1:45
  • Is this a 100% Molly affair or is this channel owned by Bon Appetite in some capacity?

    Croissants & Coffee 22/10/2022 pm1:45

  • So delighted to see you again. Yes, you have been missed dearly. Totally understand & respect that you took time to ‘get your shit together’. Smart move. Love the casual, homey, comfortable format – husband & brothers appreciated. This is exactly how home cooking takes place. Hope-to see much more of your shenanigans. Wishing you the best of all things good! 💐

  • Great recipe but Do Evan and Mack a favor and Give them the old Alan smithee. Woooof.

  • I loved you at BA. But this is not a poor production, the video quality is bad, the camera handling as well. Bad sound. I will wait for the quality to become better

    Sebastian 1 22/10/2022 pm1:45
  • love to see videos from Molly again! This chicken looks amazing. One little 'criticism' is that the camera was a bit shaky at points which made me a little dizzy. Other than that I think it's great you are back and can't wait to see more of your recipes! 😀
