Ingredients for Basic Roast Chicken Recipe

1 (4-5 pound) chicken
Marinade for roast chicken

Basic Roast Chicken Preparation

1. Wipe chicken with a damp cloth. Dry well with paper toweling; or hang up to dry in a cool, airy place for 1 to 2 hours. Transfer to a deep bowl. 2. Prepare any marinade for roast chicken (see any recipe … for Roast Chicken : Five Spices , Scallion-Honey , Tangerine Peel , or Hoisin .) Then pour over chicken and rub into skin. Let stand 1 to 2 hours, turning occasionally. Drain, reserving marinade. 3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place chicken on a rack over a drip pan containing several inches of water (this will keep the drippings from burning). Roast until bird is tender and browned, basting with marinade at 15-minute intervals and turning bird occasionally. (Allow about 30 minutes roasting time per pound.) 4. With a cleaver, chop chicken, bones and all, in 2-inch sections; or carve Western-style, and serve. VARIATION: After step 2, brush bird with melted chicken fat.
