Whether paired with aromatic herbs, piquant spices, or savory vegetables, we’ve collected our best recipes for succulent, flavorful whole roast chicken. You’ll find classics such as chicken with 40 cloves of garlic, roast chicken with rosemary and potatoes, and herb-roasted chicken, in addition to more unusual recipes such as beer-can-roasted chicken, spatchcocked chicken, and chicken roasted in a brown paper bag.
Spatchcocking (or butterflying) lets you grill a whole bird, because it enables you to cook the meat evenly. If your grill is big enough, double the recipe. Leftovers are delicious over salad.
Martha made this recipe on Cooking School episode 301, using a grill pan on the stovetop.
