From the Test Kitchen

WHY WE LOVE THIS DISH
The classic roast chicken dinner gets a lift from a bright lemon salsa verde and a side of potatoes. pancetta, and rosemary that roast directly under the chicken, soaking up all of the delicious drippings.

TECHNIQUE TO HIGHLIGHT
To imbue the chicken and its skin with rich, aromatic flavor, you’ll use your fingers to delicately separate the skin from the meat (being careful not to tear it), creating a pocket to coat with our garlic and herb butter.

tips & techniques
Prepare the potatoes & pancetta
1 Prepare the potatoes & pancetta

Remove the chicken from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Remove the spreadable butter from the refrigerator to soften. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the rosemary sprigs crosswise. Halve the potatoes lengthwise. Transfer to a large baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer, cut side down. Evenly top with the halved rosemary sprigs and pancetta.

Prepare & roast the chicken
2 Prepare & roast the chicken

In a bowl, combine the demi-glace, verjus, and 1/4 cup of water. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season on all sides with salt, pepper, and the spice blend. Using your fingers, gently loosen the skin around the entire chicken, being careful not to tear the skin. Rub the softened butter under the skin in an even layer. Place the seasoned chicken on top of the seasoned potatoes and pancetta. Pour the demi-glace mixture around the edges of the baking dish. Cover the dish with foil. Roast 30 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Carefully remove the foil. Return to the oven and roast 24 to 29 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork and the chicken is browned and cooked through.* Remove from the oven. Carefully transfer the roasted chicken to a cutting board and let rest at least 10 minutes.

*The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 165°F for chicken.
