Making roast chicken at home is so easy, and it tastes so good that it’s almost pointless to buy it cooked. All you have to do is follow a few easy steps, starting with buying a chicken of good quality, preferably organic, to ensure the best taste.
I like to soak it in brine, which is a combination of well-seasoned water, so that the meat is able to absorb all those flavors. This step can be skipped if you’re short on time, but I guarantee it’ll make all the difference.
Preparing a homemade roast chicken also gives you the added luxury of using leftovers in creative and simple ways; it’s also an economical way to bring variety to your weekly menu.
You can use the shredded meat to make a chicken salad with lettuce and other veggies. Add little bits of chopped peppers and steamed broccoli, and you’ve got another super easy meal.
As you can see, roast chicken is not only delicious but also extremely practical and versatile.
