I rarely order chicken out b/c most places F it up. Plus, it's chicken. I can do it better at home.
Years ago I found Stephen Keller's roast chicken recipe. I was in college and just really starting to cook for myself. It broke down lot's cooking barriers for me, being a kid with two working parents and no grandma withing 1500 miles. Cooking at home was mac n cheese, scrambled eggs.
This recipe has become a ritual.
