No-Fuss Spring Chicken Feast
Roasted chicken is an easy, elegant meal. But home cooks often shy away from it because they think it requires a lot of equipment and effort. We're here to say good riddance to trussing and basting! They just aren't necessary. With only a digital thermometer, roasting pan and rack, you can achieve flavorful and moist chicken in just 1.5 hours or less.
