Top Rated Roast Chicken Recipes

Roast-Chicken-Dinner Ramen
A good roast chicken is one of the best things you can put in your mouth. And ramen? It should officially replace chicken noodle soup as the most comforting food on earth. Together, they make magic: the undeniably awesome aroma of a bird roasted with garlic, thyme, and sage infused into an umami-packed broth teeming with addictively chewy noodles. Because the dish is essentially just a really good chicken soup, I’d happily eat it with any noodle, from the proper ramenI recommend to thin Chinese wheat noodles, Japanese udon, or fresh fettucine. Even elbow macaroni would hit the spot.Excerpted from the book ASIAN-AMERICAN by Dale Talde with JJ Goode. Copyright © 2015 by Dale Talde, LLC. Reprinted by permission of Grand Central Life & Style.

chicken
Roasted chicken is one of my go-to main dishes because it’s easy, versatile, and delicious. By using dark meat the chicken stays deliciously moist and is difficult to overcook; plus it tends to be more budget friendly. A hot oven, some oil, salt, and pepper is all you really need to make some tasty food. I change things up a little bit here by adding some dried herbs—rosemary and thyme in this instance—and a pint of yellow cherry tomatoes. The tomatoes burst in the oven to form a lovely sauce with the herbs and chicken juices to accompany the roasted meat. Pictured here this recipe gets served atop a bed of spinach, but a starch such as rice, potatoes, or pasta would be just as tasty for a heartier meal.For more great recipes like this one, visit The Hungry Hutch.

Roasted Chicken Drumsticks
A few weeks ago, a fellow food blogger, Natalie, and I were discussing our recipe submissions for the National Mango Board’s latest mango cookbook. I filled her in on Mango Breakfast Parfait and she skimmed over her plan for Coconut Mango Jerk Chicken.  When she got down to coconut oil, I questioned its use over butter.  She assured me it would work just the same.Fast forward to last minute dinner party hosting this past weekend.  I rushed through the market, picking up a ton of drumsticks with coconut oil in mind.  And since I just happened to have tested this out earlier in the week, I was confident that {with a few minor adjustments} the main course would be a hit.And it was.  Roasted chicken with herby, crispy skin is one of those minimal effort, majorly impressive kind of dishes, which happen to be the best dishes to have on hand for last minute dinner parties.  And the coconut oil?  Worked like a charm.For more great recipes like this one, visit FoodFash.

Tarragon-Roasted Chicken
Roasting a chicken used to be an intimidating concept to me. The bird seemed big, it couldn’t be cooked on the stovetop, and in my mind only a mom, grandma, or some other official adult had the necessary expertise. Then I was commissioned to test a group of recipes, and roasted chicken was on the list. It turns out it isn’t difficult at all. Now I think everyone should know how to roast a chicken, if only to enjoy the head start it gives you on nearly a week’s worth of meals: tacos on Tuesday, chicken salad on Wednesday, and a sandwich on Thursday.What makes this recipe special is the combination of sage, rosemary, lemon, and tarragon stuffed into the bird’s cavity. It smells divine while roasting, and the meat acquires a lush citrus-herb flavor. Roasted Vegetables with Tahini Vinaigrette would be great on the side. You will need a meat thermometer to make sure the chicken is properly cooked. If yours is instant-read rather than traditional, pull the bird out of the oven after 45 minutes and check the temperature in the thickest part of the thigh, avoiding the bone.Excerpted from COOKING SOLO, © 2016 by Klancy Miller.

Everyone has a go-to meal right? You know, that meal you make whenever you want something that you know will turn out great every single time.

It’s an all occasions meal really. Because this roasted chicken thighs recipe is so incredibly easy! As long as you have a cast iron skillet, you are golden.. and your chicken thighs will be too! The skin gets so crispy using this method that it almost tastes like bacon. Almost. The skin is truly the best part.

But, the thigh meat is not to be overlooked – because it is cooked to perfection! Super moist and tender – what more could you ask for!?Next time you need a quick and easy meal that is sure to impress your friends, try this recipe for roasted chicken thighs!For more great recipes like this one, visit A Dash of Megnut.

Pot-Roasted Chicken
A heavy Dutch oven. Piney rosemary. Sweet celery root. Salty-rich slab bacon. Crushed juniper berries. Homemade broth. Calvados. A good chicken. This is my winter roast chicken mantra. Say it to yourself a few times, make it once or twice, and it might become yours as well. Use a high-quality bird (I like to use Murray's); those with a solution added for flavor not only taste inferior, they dilute the bird’s delicious juices.Adapted from “A Bird in the Oven and Then Some,” by Mindy Fox.Click here to see For Easy Entertaining, Roast a Chicken.Click here to see The Ultimate 1-Pot Meal Roundup.Click here to see 101 Ways to Cook Chicken.

Roast Chicken with French Fries
"Poulet frites!" I'd yell every time we went to a restaurant. My parents would look at the menu, discuss the different possibilities, and then decide to be adventuresome. I, on the other hand, always knew exactly what I wanted — delicious crisp chicken and a heaping mound of thin french fries, crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, served with the rich, creamy mayonnaise that tasted nothing like home. — Sara Remington   Click here to see 101 Ways to Cook Chicken
