My Favorite Simple Roast Chicken - courtesy of Epicurious Don't be intimidated by the length of the recipie; it goes into detail about trussing a chicken (a vital lesson!). Do, however, be excited at the prospect of a great and inexpensive main course. With a small roaster ranging in price from $4 - $6, all you're "splurging" on is a fresh herb.
The chicken is very moist and it has beautiful flavor. We so often use chicken as a go-to protein that we strive to create new flavors. In this instance, you have the opportunity to enjoy the actual chicken flavor (there is such a thing) and not be overwhelmed with marinades, bastings or other secondary flavors. Trust me, I understand that after 8 nights of chicken you want to taste something else but then I challange you to try a new protein. But I digress...

Red and white fingerlings from my crop share through Promised Land CSA in Corfu, NY. Very good!
