Roast chicken is a staple in many households. If you still haven't found a recipe for a foolproof roast chicken, look no further than this. It cooks up beautifully with crisp skin and juicy, flavorful meat and takes only a few minutes to prepare. Once you try it, you'll want to make it once a week.
