  • Unfortunately, after following this tutorial twice on two separate occasions, two separate chickens, I find it that unless it’s baked in a rotisserie style – this chicken comes out tasting BLAND, dry, and sad, every time. I moved over to Jamaican style seasoning, making fresh jerk & green seasonings out of variety of blended fresh herbs and spices, cut the chicken so it lays flat, and I promise you it’s delicious, juicy, crispy every time. This didn’t pass the test in my kitchen unfortunately.

    And on a side note. Yes, it’s crucial that your chicken be washed prior, with lemons or limes and thoroughly, don’t skip that step. Don’t want no gross aftertaste.

  • Roast chicken Ice cream

  • This is borderline blasphemy. Don't try this recipe. Be more creative, please.

    You can start breast side down. At 425 degrees flip the bird after 30 minutes and continue to roast breast side up for 40 minutes. The juices from the fattier dark meet and moisture from celery, squash etc… and whatever you choose to make the dish juicy.

  • I dont care if the skin is crispy, i just want good flavor and the meat is juicy.

  • Just cooked this up according to how she specified. Only change was the addition of onion and garlic powder with the seasoning. Excellent roast. No problems at all with really juicy chicken and the skin was crispy and delicious. Need a good size bird and I had one. Thought the 230 degree Celcius may overpower and potentially burn the chicken. Not so – but maybe it would on a smaller bird. Have totally stripped the chicken and currently brewing up the broth. Smells really good. The value out of one bird is fantastic with numerous good, healthy, delicious meals. Have not roasted a chicken for a long time and wanted to try it out again. This recipe has certainly encouraged me to cook it a lot more regularly. Simple, delicious, healthy and excellent value.

  • You don't need to wash your chicken. And all you need is salt and pepper.

  • My chicken like taking a bath. It likes to use baby shampoo so it doesn’t burn eyes.

  • Wash your vegetables, wash your meat.

    Janella Churchill 16/10/2022 pm9:52
  • Don't prick the chicken, it'll let important juices out that keep the chicken meat moist. Crispy skin is easy, last 20 mins of cooking time leave it in oven uncovered on a higher heat. You do need to cook it for the right length of time though as if it's cooked too long the last 20 mins on higher heat can dry out the meat.

  • She still had blood on it

    Jender E. Arevalo 16/10/2022 pm9:52
