Sounds easy (and it is), but there are some things you can do to make it great. Like invest in a good thermometer. Roast chicken can become dry in a hurry if it’s overcooked. Temp your bird in the thickest part of the thigh until it reaches 165 degrees F. It will be thoroughly cooked, but still moist and juicy. And if you’re like me and the million others who plan on eating healthier in the new year, the skin on the roast chicken is off limits. But you won’t miss it if you remember to season your bird with salt and pepper under the skin. This way the seasoning makes direct contact with the meat so you’ll get more flavor.
