Thomas Keller’s My Favorite Simple Roast Chicken recipe from his Bouchon cookbook is my go-to roast chicken recipe. Just like the recipe’s title, it is simple. You just need to pat dry, season, and truss the chicken and then roast for a hour. Rest for 5-10 mins before carving it or just dive in with your fingers. Don’t forget to prepare some sides to go with it. Green beans, carrots, broccoli, rice or potatoes are perfect sides to go with this recipe.
