Country Roasted Chicken
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 65 min. + standing
There really isn’t anything better than a well roasted chicken, and this is one of the best I’ve made. Stuffing the cavity with aromatics is really genius. It adds a tremendous amount of flavor with minimal effort. My husband especially loved the potatoes cooked in the broth, then crisped at the higher temperature. I will make this again! VFE
I thought this was average for as much time as it took to cook. The times here for the chicken I had were way off. I had to leave it in the oven for another 20 minutes and it was still borderline closer to the bone. I don't feel the onions and carrots inside the chicken gave it much more flavor. Thankfully I anticipated this and seasoned under the skin and rubbed the chicken down with butter prior to roasting to give a nice crispy skin. That, unfortunately was the best part of the chicken.
The results from following the instructions yield forth a flavorful, tender, juicy roasted chicken. Beautiful. Made chicken salad with the left overs. Thanks for sharing.
Sliced onion, celery, and three garlic gloves and stuffed 5lb chicken. Added ten minutes to each baking time. Used 3/4 cup broth and cut up potatoes. Salted and peppered inside and out of chicken. Threw two bay leaves on top. Used soup base to make broth with chicken neck in boiling water. Mixed two T softened butter with two T flour and added to pan juices to make gravy.
Sooooo good! I will use as my go-to roast hen recipe from now on. I don't usually alter recipes but next time I will try just 1/2 teasp salt inside and just a wee sprinkle on top - oh and add more broth -just so there's more for gravy. Teenaged daughter said "you should make this more often". She is starting to collect recipes and this one is a definite keeper. Thank you for sharing, Judy Page and Taste of Home.
Super tasting and super easy! The chicken comes out moist and falling off the bone. This recipe gets a blue ribbon. I served it with Herbed Honey Lime Sauce, another TOH recipe.
It was good, I cut pototoes to cook it faster and pototoes must be in the broth to be cooked and not dry hard. I sprinkled the chicken with garlic.
This was really good. The chicken was really moist and the potatoes came out with the perfect consistency. The recipie was so simple, I was really surprised how good the flavor was.
