Stand Up for Roasted Chicken!

Roasted Chicken

Yesterday, I made an inexpensive roasted chicken I bought on sale for 99 cents per pound. I used the upright chicken roaster and pan my mom had sent me years ago to essentially bake the chicken at 350º for fifteen minutes per pound.

I “stood” it on the wire supports, lowered the rack in the preheated oven, and baked it with three bulbs of foil-wrapped garlic brushed with olive oil.

The upright roaster lets the fat drip away and evenly cooks the bird on all sides.

Do I need to tell you the aroma was other worldly?
