Roasted Chicken Country Cooking Recipes
Never underestimate the fragance of a fresh roasted chicken. An example of the beauty and simplicity of roast chicken has the power to satisfy, impress and appetize.
It takes a little longer to roast a chicken than other cooking methods, but it requires very little preparation time.
Fragrant, crispy, roast chicken skin is delicious. Some fans insist it is the best part of the chicken.
It does contain a great deal of fat and many people remove it to avoid the extra calories.
If you choose to eat it or remove it, always leave the skin on during roasting, because it holds in moisture and prevents the meat from drying.
