Thomas Keller's Simple Roasted Chicken

Submitted by: EXENEC

Introduction

From epicurious.com, the best roasted chicken I've ever had : 3 ingredients (3 lb chicken, salt & pepper). It makes 4 main servings (2 breast/wing, 2 leg/thigh) plus around 1-2 cups for soups, salads, etc. Unfortunately it is very high in sodium (recipe calls for approx 1 T) but you don't need to use that much.

Ingredients

    1 3-lb chicken
    1 T salt
    pepper to taste


Directions

Preheat oven to 450. Liberally salt chicken with sea salt and pepper to taste. Truss the chicken. Putting it on top vegetables will reduce smokiness (not figured in calculations) and add a delicious and effortless side dish. Roast for 50-55 min. Let rest 15 minutes on cutting board.

Of course the fat and calories will be reduced if you don't eat the skin, but the crispy, salty skin is the best part of it!
