    One of the best ever. As with the previous contirbutor, I removed potatoes from fat to crisp up/ As I writer a second chicken and another lot of potatoes in the oven. By the time my family have finished tonight I will have cooked about 6lb of chicken and 11lb of potatoes. Getting my 3 Aussie males can be a struggl, but tonight's effort has been a efinite hit with them and with very little fuss for me. Thanks Martha and Jean-Georges.

    I've found that to get the best results, only put as many potatoes in as makes a single layer in the pan. I also end up using less fat for my pan size than what's called for, and even spoon some out at the end (to use in other recipes) so the potatoes aren't swimming in it. And when the chicken's done, I put it on a plate to rest and return the potatoes to the oven to brown and crisp up some more.

    This recipe yields great results with a minimal investment in effort and time. For a group, you can roast two chickens at once in a larger roasting pan. This is a definite go-to recipe for entertaining.

    To Delightfullybaked: Marinated chicken?? No, do this the way the good chef tells you and it turns out great. There is no room left for stuffing. You have herbs and garlic already in there and that's enough for a little chicken. It is so good I make it at least one a month. A bit on the high calorie side though.
