The almost universal appeal of roasted chicken stems from its power to comfort. The ideal roasted chicken recipe will leave your chicken golden brown and gleaming, tender and juicy. The crackle of chicken as it roasts and the wondrous aroma that perfumes the kitchen provoke a feeling of satisfaction and fulfillment.

Spatchcocking -- splitting, then flattening a chicken -- yields a perfect roasted chicken in less time than a whole one takes. It also exposes more skin, which crisps up nicely at higher temperatures. Click here to learn how. Feel free to use a roasting pan or a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet.

recipe

The cremini mushrooms bring selenium and potassium, not to mention a wealth of B vitamins, to this dish. Heat aids in the availability of certain carotenoids, so the cancer-fighting antioxidant lycopene present in the tomatoes grows even more powerful through the cooking process. This dish is great paired with a slice of thick-cut whole-grain bread or a serving of healthy brown rice.
