I read recently that Julia Child once said, "You can always judge the quality of a cook or a restaurant by roast chicken."
She said a lot more about basting and hovering over that bird, but I'm going to ignore that. I don't do either. However, if you are going to judge my cooking, based on my roast chicken, then I am A-OK with that!
I have been roasting chickens for years. Sometimes they were dry, and other times they were juicy, but bland. I eventually hit upon what, for me, is perfection.
