A roast chicken dinner is about as homey as good cooking gets. At our house roasted potatoes are a must with a good roast chicken; not making roast potatoes would be a cardinal sin in my son’s eyes especially. You can find our very popular version of English style roast potatoes here.

We often roast off other root vegetables like carrots and Spouse’s favourite parsnip to serve as well but the star of the show is always a perfectly roasted chicken.

Frozen chicken can be used in a pinch but I find fresh chicken is much juicer when roasted.

I like to brine my poultry before roasting but it’s not essential if you are pressed for time. You can read more about my brining technique here
This one was particularly good with a sweet and smoky glaze to make for a perfect Sunday roast dinner

I leave the skin on. Full side breasts should take about an hour or a bit longer depending on their size. 185 degrees internal temperature on a meat thermometer is the best way to ensure any poultry is fully cooked.

Hi! I am going to try your lovely recipe with bone in chicken breasts. Should I leave the skin on. Also about how long should the chicken be in the oven for? Thank you!

Is chipotle powder the same thing as chipotle chilli powder?

If not brining your chicken you should season it with salt and pepper first.
