Mark Bittman's Roast Chicken Parts With Butter or Olive Oil (Plu

This was given on the web as the simplest chicken recipe there is and perhaps the easiest as well. As if that isn't enough, you can change the flavoring every time you make it so you'll never get tired of it, either. For example, you may substitute a combination of herbs for the single herb in the ingredients. Also check the variations for other flavorings. In the comments following this recipe some responders criticized the name of this recipe as being gross, citing the "chicken parts." If you come up with a better name, I hope you'll share it with the rest of us!
