I was excited to see Dorie’s Roast Chicken for les paresseux (for lazy people!) (pp200-201) on the list for this month’s French Fridays with Dorie recipes. In our house, Neil is the master chicken roaster – we roast a chicken at least once a month – but he never really seems to follow a recipe. […]
