Some things in life should be simple. Like taking a walk on an autumn day. Or sitting by the fire on a snowy night. sipping a manhattan. Roasting chicken fits into that category.
It is so simple that you forget that you are actually cooking. And if it is done right, it can be seriously good. Tom Keller’s recipe is probably the best one around because it is the simplest of the bunch. the only thing that takes a second is to truss the bird.
Go for it!
