Roast Chicken Perfecto
140 mins (prep 20, cooking 120)
10 ingredients
6-12 servings
I don't think anyone originated this one. It's bits and pieces I've read in books, seen on cooking shows, and observed in friends kitchens over the years. I just assembled it in it's present form. It's not mine even if it does have my name on it. My Mother used to say, "NEVER ROAST A CHICKEN! The oven's hot so it doesn't cost any more to roast two of them and you can always find a use for a bit of chicken." She's right, cook them in pairs, they're more comfortable that way. Chop and/or shredd the leftovers, put them into freezer bags, 1/4 lb per bag. LABEL THEM! After they're frozen gather them into a gallon ziplock to keep control of them.
