MY NOTES

Which potato is best for this recipe?

Russet potatoes, boasting high starch content, yield a fluffy interior and crispy exterior for a classic, crunchy roast. Meanwhile, Gold potatoes, with their creamy texture and thin, tender skin, offer a luxurious, slightly sweet taste that pairs perfectly with roasted chicken, adding a touch of elegance to the dish. Red potatoes, featuring thin, edible skin and a waxy consistency, maintain their shape during roasting, remaining pleasantly firm with a mild, earthy flavor that harmonizes well with chicken and seasonings.

How to ensure the chicken stays moist

First, use a meat thermometer to ensure precise cooking. Roast the chicken to an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). Overcooking can dry it out. Second, consider brining the chicken before roasting. A simple saltwater solution can infuse moisture and flavor. Finally, let the chicken rest for about 10-15 minutes after roasting. This allows the juices to redistribute, keeping the meat tender and preventing moisture loss.

What type of pan or tray is best for roasting this dish?

A sturdy, heavy-duty roasting pan with low sides works best. It conducts heat evenly and accommodates the chicken and potatoes comfortably. If you don’t have a roasting pan, a large, rimmed baking sheet or a shallow ovenproof skillet can also work. Ensure it’s spacious enough to arrange the ingredients in a single layer, allowing for proper airflow and even cooking. Whichever you choose, consider lining it with parchment paper or using a non-stick cooking spray to prevent sticking and make cleanup easier.
