Week-end Simple: Roast a chicken

Since I've moved and started cooking for one, I've been eating less meat.  Vegetable gratins, eggs, pasta, and soups are quick to prepare and have satisfied my desire for comfort food during these cold, winter months.
But this weekend, I think I'd like to roast a chicken.  

The best recipe I've found for roasting chicken is from Alice Water's The Art of Simple Food. Some salt, herbs, the right pot, and the freshest chicken you can buy result in the perfect entree for a weekend meal.

Bon week-end!


  1. That's a good recipe. That whole book is pretty fantastic, actually. Love the goat cheese souffle.

    Save the carcass and make chicken stock!

  2. I *love* a roasted chicken! I must try this at home.

  3. I have on my menu plan to roast a chicken on Sunday to go along with a plethora of veggies. Then I'll freeze part of it for later, use part of it in a tart, some in a small pot of soup. One chicken can be used for 10+ meals when it's just one person! And then the carcass is good for stock!

  4. My hubby and I often do this on Sundays, either do our own or by one at the market. I do miss getting them from the local market in France on Sundays - never had better tasting poulet than that!

  5. Our Friday tradition in the winter is a roast chicken (Barefoot Contessa recipe, similar to Alice Waters), a tray of roasted veg, a glass of cabernet, and a simple dessert - the best being cheese and apples. For the summer I'm going to try a version on the grill.

    Bon Appetit!

  6. I love roasted chicken. I use Robert Arbor's recipe in Joie de vivre. Then for leftovers I go Mexican American and get some tortillas, yummy salsa and lemon. I put shredded chicken in the warmed tortillas, a dollop of salsa and a squeeze of lemon juice on it and roll it up. Delicious.

  7. I still tend to buy my roast chicken from the store, I just don't have the time or patience. But we have started making our own stock from the chicken.

  8. Gгeat goοds from you, man. I've consider your stuff previous to and you're simply too excellent.
