Peter Berthold, Gabriele Mohr. For many people feeding and watching the feathered friends is one of the The Pipestone Wolves. I also borrowed a couple of tips from legendary chef and roast chicken doyenne Judy Rogers. But, after thinking about the Cook's Illustrated Peking duck parallel, I realized that the herbs may be doing double duty: flavoring the chicken while also holding the skin away from the flesh while the bird roasts, thereby providing more space and air, and hence an additional avenue to crispness.
When my bird emerged from the oven, deliciously golden and crisp, I decided to try a second trick from Rogers, who slashes the skin between the thighs and breasts just after removing her bird from the oven, then immediately pours the juices into a bowl. It occurred to me that this slashing also provides a perfect release for the hot steam that otherwise tends to de-crisp the skin of a crackly-skinned chicken as the bird rests.
Plus you get those juices, which are fabulous for spooning over the warm chicken and potatoes.

But taste-wise, I think it holds up pretty well. After resting, is it as crispy as the Cook's Illustrated version? No, but it's pretty damn good for a weeknight roast chicken. A few other tips for making my Low-Fuss Crispy Roast Chicken or any crispy roast chicken, for that matter :. Using cold air as opposed to water to chill chickens during processing leads to a chicken with no added moisture. Since the less wet your bird is prior to roasting, the more crispy the skin will be, starting out with an air-chilled bird gives you a significant advantage on your crispy-skin journey.
Bonus: You avoid paying for the extra water that is retained during the water-chilling process. To avoid spreading raw chicken juices to all parts of your kitchen—and to avoid having to wash your hands every five minutes—pull out all the tools you'll need ahead of time and create a little workspace.
Before you even take your raw chicken out of the fridge, wash and put away any dishes from your sink. Clear off an area on your countertop near the sink, so you easily wash your hands as needed during the prep process, and any raw chicken juices that splash around can be easily cleaned up. Rip off and place a stack of paper towels alongside your cutting board.
Cut a piece of twine to tie together the legs. And grab a metal skewer to do your poking. High heat equals a crispy bird. Drain any liquid from the cavity of the chicken, then go to town with a major pat down. Ball up a paper towel or two and push it into the cavity, absorbing as much moisture as you can. I do several rounds of this, leaving the towels inside for a minute or so each time--just be sure to remove them before cooking. Why is this step so important? Because moisture creates steam, and steam kills crackle.
Making space for and then slipping herbs under the skin covering the breasts and legs allows for good airflow, enhancing crispiness while flavoring your bird. Using kosher salt or crushed flaky sea salt like Maldon , season your bird all over— liberally. Tiny holes poked in the skin of your bird will give the rendering fat a way to escape, enhancing crispiness.
Tying the legs together promotes even cooking.
