Hi, welcome to the Rada Cutlery kitchen. My name is Kristi, and today I want to show you how to roast a whole chicken. To get started, you need a whole chicken, some potatoes, carrots, onions, lemons, garlic, and butter. Here’s my whole chicken, I rinsed it well, took out the giblets, cut off the excess fat, and I patted it dry with a paper towel. I did brine this one, that will make it super moist and tender. You can watch my other video on how to brine a whole chicken. We want to let that sit out for about 20 minutes while we prepare our vegetables. Let it come to room temperature.
Here I have a roasting pan. I’m using the Rada Cutlery stoneware Rectangular Baker. It’s great for roasting items because it keeps an even temperature and you don’t have to season it. I’m going to take a couple potatoes. I’m going to leave the skin on. You can peel it if you want. All the nutrients are in the skin. I washed this potato. Now I’m going to dice it with this Rada Utility/Steak knife. It handles like a paring knife but it has a nice length to it. We’ll put those on the bottom of our pan.
I’m going to add some carrots. These you will want to peel. This Rada Vegetable Peeler is very slick at getting that peeling off. With these I’ll just cut into slices. Now I’m going to take an onion and make some slices. We’re going to put this in the middle of the pan, it’s what our chicken is going to rest on. We’ll just set those in the middle. Now we’re going to place our chicken breast side up on top of those onions. Then we’re going to slather it with this melted butter. That’s going to give it that nice, brown color. Then you can put it on vegetables and sprinkle with your favorite season salt. I’m going to use this Rada Cutlery Burger & Fry Seasoning. It’s good on everything, not just burgers. I’ll get some in the cavity.
Now, in the cavity I’m going to put in some onions, some slices. Then I’m going to cut up a lemon that will give it a good flavor and aroma. And we’re going to put some crushed garlic in there. So we’re just going to stuff that chicken with onion and lemon slices. I’m going to save a lemon for the top. Then I’m going to add some crushed garlic.
If you want to make a pretty presentation you can take some cord and tie it in a bow. We’ll put a pretty lemon on the top then we’re going to put that in a preheated 425 degree oven for about an hour and a half or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees.
Our delicious roast chicken is done. After taking it out of the oven you’ll want to let it sit 20 minutes to let the juices soak back into the meat. It’s ready to carve. Enjoy!
