Crisp Skinned Roasted Chicken with Rosemary Potatoes

So I tried a new recipe!!
It is from the January issue of Martha Stewart.
You can find the recipe here.

You sprinkle a little cornstarch on the chicken and rub it with butter, that is what makes the chicken so crisp.

But, my families favorite part of this recipe was the potatoes!!
You peel and boil them a bit. Then you lay them around
the chicken and cook in the oven. They become yummy and crispy!
(You do need to flip them once half way through)
Next time we try this chicken we will definitely make more of the potatoes!

You may say why make my own roast chicken when you can get them pre-roasted from nearly every supermarket. Don't get me wrong I buy those too. But, there is something about the smell that makes it worth it to make one at home. And it really is easy.

There were several other roast chicken recipes from the January issue we will be trying.
How does Garlic-Rubbed Chicken with Roasted Oranges and Red Onions sound? Or Paprika- Rubbed Chicken with Roasted Garlic? You can find these recipes here and here.

So grab a whole chicken next time they are on sale and try one out for yourself!
