Beyond excellent. The best roast chicken I’ve ever made. Turned out perfect and succulent with amazing flavor. Thank you Julia! I Thought of you the entire time I was cooking! We miss you here but thank God your recipes keep you here!
I don’t love chicken and this recipe is a game changer for me. I made it for my sister for Thanksgiving since she is not a fan of Turkey and I have already made it multiple times. Each time it has come out juicy and scrumptious. I did make one minor adjustment and put thin lemon slices between skin and chicken when I first put the chicken in.
Thank you for sharing this recipe.
Disappointing. Skin did not crisp and timing a little off-used by thermapen for temp. This is a variation of her poulet roti in the Art of French Cooking. Will try that one since Julia has never steered us wrong before.
Have made this classic Julia Child chicken for years. My family loves it. For company I will cook 2 or 3 depending on how many guests - always appreciated although simple. As to sides - cook some rice or pasta and spoon vegetables you stuffed chicken with over it along with some of the juices. Add a green vegetable or salad - some rolls?? - and your done!!
I wish that y'all would pair these with recommended sides!
Thank you for this recipe, it looks great, but #4 (roasting instructions) needs to be rewritten, it makes no sense.
