Molly Makes Roast Chicken and Potatoes | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

Cook #withme #stayhome - Join Molly Baz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she makes roast chicken and potatoes. This isn’t the crisp-skinned, high-heat roast chicken you’re probably familiar with. Instead, it’s a melt-in-your-mouth tender, schmaltzy, slow-roast version that’s more similar to rotisserie chicken-except (bonus!) it gets slathered in the funky-spicy-sweet gochujang. And while the meat might be the star of the show, don't discount those buttery-soft, nearly-confited potatoes, which cook gently in the chicken fat. Makes you wonder why you haven't always been roasting long-cooking vegetables-carrots, cauliflower, turnips (?!), winter squash, fennel-under the bird for a built-in side, huh?
Check out the recipe here:

    Is there a way to do this with cuts of chicken instead of a whole chicken? Let's say I have a whole bunch of chicken thighs? How would that affect the cooking temperature or time?

    ok, super serious question: what is the deal with hand washing and touching meat?? but really i watched her touch everything around her with chicken hands......she even pulled her hair back right off patting the chicken dry. so im really confused cause i am crazy sketched about raw meat, and i always wonder how chefs manage it without just contaminating every surface, but in this she dosent even seem to care. whats up with that!!!???

    Use the kitchen twine to tie back your hair ! Gross. After patting dry your bird hand straight to the hair FFS tie back your locks or wear a hairnet.

    This popped up in my subscription feed the other day there, as I had a full chicken in the fridge and was interested to see what BA did with theirs. I just happened to have the same gochujang paste in my cupboard (I don't usually have the same ingredients in my house and would go out to get them when I need them, so was pleasantly surprised that I had everything for a change! ), so that made my dinner plans easy! Turned out super nice actually and now using the leftovers for a soup today! :D
