Using a V-shaped rack is an excellent and healthy way to roast chicken. The open cavity of the chicken is placed over the rack, allowing the chicken to roast upright. lt you don’t have a V-shaped rack, you can just place the chicken in the roasting pan. However, the overall result is better with the rack - the chicken skin crisps all around, and any excess fat drips off into the pan.
Try other seasoning combinations for this roast chicken. Make it intemational by using Marrakech Rub, tandoori paste or a mixture of hoisin and chili sauces. Fora onedish meal, add cubed root vegetables, such as sweet potatoes, carrots, potatoes and turnips, around the chicken for the last hour of cooking. For the last 10 minutes of cooking, add apple or pear slices.
For a great Sunday dinner add Oven-Roasted Lemon Potatoes and steamed broccoli.
