Sure, Chicken Soup is for the Soul…But Roast Chicken is for Body AND Soul!Chicken / August 10, 2016
But you also love how I cook! At least that’s what I hear! And nothing is better than the comforting, and celestial aroma that wafts from you oven when you’re roasting a GOOOOD chicken. I can’t make the perfect chicken, but I can make it butter…I mean better. Well, you know what I mean!
This recipe is inspired by the Standard Grill’s Million Dollar Chicken as featured on The Barefoot Contessa. However, I decided to change things up a little when I discovered I did not have Creme Fraiche. It worked out perfectly. And you have NO IDEA how tender, juicy, and full of flavor this dish contains. I don’t know how, in only 1 hour of cooking the flesh becomes so infused with flavors, but it does.
The secret, or the answer is most likely in the basting, and then the herbed butter that is slathered on at the end and allowed to crisp up during the last few minutes of cooking. Then, let the chicken rest. SO, SO, IMPORTANT.
