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:

  • 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!!!???

  • I made this a couple of weeks ago. It was *so* good despite that I used a gochujang sauce, rather than paste. Now I am stocked up on the real gochujang paste and can't wait to make it again. Thank you for this easy, comforting and exciting recipe.

  • 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
