This is the best whole roast chicken recipe I've made. If you have enough time, this one is perfection
I won't be using the sugar because I am diabetic. Everything else sounds great.
I really enjoyed this recipe. We served 5 adults using two small fryer chickens that totaled around 5.5 lb. I only had dried rosemary and did not have a full 6+ hours to brine. The chicken turned out very moist and flavorful. Outside of those points, we followed the recipe very closely. The mushrooms added a richness to the chicken that really makes this recipe stand out. Thank you for sharing!
I think I'll utilize the porcini mushroom water and keep the mushrooms themselves for something else. My reason being is the butter milk and amount of garlic would likely over power the mushroom flavors, but if they do add something you can taste then the mushroom water should work.
