Grant Achatz's favorite comfort food is a simple roasted chicken. To give the bird extra flavor, he rubs garlicky butter under the breast skin and packs the cavity with more garlic, plus thyme sprigs and lemon quarters. After the chicken is cooked, he uses the juices to make an intensely flavored sauce that's delicious with the bird and the hearty pierogies that go with it.
