I used to fear cooking a whole chicken. Not anymore! While I’m still a novice at carving it (I am getting better), the cooking part couldn’t be easier. What has become a nearly weekly meal in my house is Barefoot Contessa’s Lemon Chicken with Croutons. The prep takes all of five or ten minutes and then the chicken takes about an hour to an hour and a half to cook. It is so moist and flavorful, and the homemade croutons are salty and crunchy and perfect. I’m making it tonight!
Here is Ina making it.
