And now I have a few tips to make the perfect roasted chicken:

  • I like to wash the chicken and then pat it dry
  • Season the chicken with salt and lemon juice (first lemon; then salt). I like to do this in the previous day to help dry out the skin and make it even crispier, but you can even salt it a few minutes before.
  • Use an herb and butter rub under the skin. This will baste the chicken while it cooks, add flavor, and be just so amazing. Please don´t skip this step.
  • Baste your chicken with pan juices after you are done the cooking.
  • Rest the chicken after removing it from the oven.
