    Look at you go! I think roast chicken is harder than it looks. I’d never heard of the flipping technique (though we have cooked one totally upside down by accident once).

    My friend makes hers in an oven bag and pours champage on it. It’s soooo good.

    Yes, the hardest part for me is dealing with the whole bird (and the insides) as a bird. It’s skeevy to me too. Even roasting a half a turkey breast the other morning made me oogy. Beef not so much. Not sure what it is about the birds.

    Great job!

      I picked up some oven bags with the intention of using it yesterday but decided to give the recipe a whirl before changing it. The champagne chicken sounds good though!

    What a winning combination! Chicken + lemon + roast veggies = PERFECTION!

    My mom would stick her arm up to the elbow between the skin and the flesh in order to get pieces of butter all the way around the thing. Grrrosss!! Well, delicious, but Grrrosss!!

    Great job on the chicken and the veggies looked yummy!!

      I’m pretty sure butter makes everything taste better!

    ha… I have heard of this chicken. 😉

    looks like you were successful – I cannot handle raw chicken, don’t know if I could ever make this 😀

    Ooh, could you share a link to your Pandora station? Love Pandora!

    I have never roasted my own chicken, but my boyfriend and I have done “fake Thanksgiving” twice (to practice getting the turkey cooked properly and all the side dishes done at the right time). After doing a couple turkeys, I was surprised at how easy it is. And from the look of your chicken, roasting a chicken is probably pretty easy too! Even though roasting any kind of poultry sounds really intimidating.

    I’m definitely bookmarking the lemony roast chicken recipe, though… sounds great, I would love to try it!

      It was really good! I would do it again. I like your idea of having practice Thanksgivings! This will be the first year we do it.

      I’ll see if I can figure out how to link to my Pandora channel.

    I find it funny that as SOON as I saw this post I’m sitting here saying “hey, that’s what Beth made.”

    Glad I’m not the only one who listens to Howard enough to remember these details. 😉 It does look good!

      Woo Hoo!! Howard fan. 🙂

    Hi there! I’m attempting this little creation tonight and was wondering if you could share your Roasted Potatoes recipe? Just so I know the exact instructions…I’m not super savvy in the kitchen. Thank you!

      Cool! Good for you. It was a delicious dinner. The potatoes: Red Potatoes, Carrots, Sweet Onions, Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper, Minced Garlic, Parsley. Chop the veggies all the same size so they cook evenly. I put it all in a glass pan and baked it in the oven. Check it a lot. If I remember correctly it took awhile for the potatoes to cool–maybe even an hour…
