The Ultimate Roast Chicken

Plays:

In this video, you’ll learn how to make the ultimate roast chicken. You’ll see one of Chef John’s favorite tricks for roasting chicken. He’ll teach you how to make a simple flavored compound butter to rub under the chicken’s skin. The easy rub combines room-temperature butter with herbs, garlic, and lemon zest. You’ll see a neat trick for loosening the skin of the chicken, so you can really get the butter in there. This simple rub technique keeps the delicious citrus, herb, and butter flavor inside the bird instead of draining off into the pan. See top-rated recipes for roast chicken.

How do you find the recipe for the ultimate roast chicken? The video is great but I need to print out the recipe.

This was really delicious! I had a 5 pound chicken and I added 3 drops of doTerra Oregano, 20 minutes - so moist and savory! I'll make this again!

made this last night for a picky friend, it was excellent. I also made the gravy from the same chef and was impressed, even my picky friend liked it. Would make it again, I did not have fresh spices so I used dried. Came out great. Would love to have the printed version.
