Tips for roasting

Now for those who love their roast chicken most of us love moist soft chicken with a perfectly crisp coating and I have gathered the very simple steps you need to keep in mind when roasting and so I am sharing what I have collected from the known experts of the world and the experts who never get recognition and yet are beautifully talented :-

  1. The Chicken must be cleaned well with lukewarm water 
  2. Once cleaned the chicken must be patted dry inside out with a kitchen towel before one begins with the seasoning with salt and pepper 
  3. Take your time with massaging the Chicken inside out with a generous amount of butter or oil (the key to a crispy moist roast) 
  4. Taking out the wishbone when cleaning the chicken helps in ease of carving at the dinner table 
  5. Tie the chicken's legs before roasting and put its wings behind the bird when placing it on the roasting pan
  6. Basting is the most important factor in a moist well roasted chicken. Basting means coating the chicken in its own juices from the pan or some stalk or stalk and butter or oil mixed together from time to time. I start by basting after 20 minutes of roasting and then follow it every 15 minutes 
  7. In order to keep the oven warm do not open the door and try to bast while the chicken is inside the oven but take it out and close the door quickly bast it and put it back in. 
  8. In my experience a  brush is the most useful tool for basting 
  9. Cover the chicken with a foil in the last 15 minutes of roasting to make sure it does not burn 
  10.  Letting the chicken rest post roasting it wrapped in a kitchen towel is very important to retain its moisture making the chicken soft and tender. 
  11. Use the liquid left in the pan for the best gravy ever. If you have used vegetables, mash them and bring them to a boil with the liquid and your guests will keep licking their lips
