Roast chicken makes a ridiculously easy weeknight meal, but in the past, my recipes often resulted in too-dry meat. Then, I discovered the cast-iron method, and I've never looked back.
With this recipe, all you need is a chicken, a cast-iron skillet (a 10-inch skillet works well), and salt and pepper. Getting the chicken super dry before roasting produces a perfectly browned skin, and the cast iron keeps the rendered fat from burning. Follow this method, at this temp, for this amount of time, and the chicken will come out perfectly moist and delicious. Get the best, easiest roast chicken recipe.
She's right: an oven-roasted bird can be made a number of ways, and everyone seems to have a different method of doing it. Some cook their chickens low and slow, while others sing the praises of a high oven temp and a short cooking time.
Maybe you start at a high temperature, then lower it. Should you brown the chicken first in a pan, then stick it in the oven? These are all very personal questions. What's your tried-and-true method of making a standout roasted chicken?

I served it with white beans, but it would pair nicely with potatoes or rice. Get the recipe, after the break.
The recipe calls for a three-pound chicken, though I got one that was about 2.5 pounds, which was just big enough to squeeze into my 10-inch skillet. I only salted and peppered my meat, and with so much moistness, it had plenty of flavor. For the delicious details and the recipe, read more

The hardest part of this recipe is peeling the chicken from the carcass. Other than that, it's nothing more than roast chicken with a simple herb butter.
