I made Ina Garten's Perfect Roast Chicken one night this week for supper. It was perfect. I usually bake my whole chicken at 350 degrees for a couple of hours. I drizzle extra virgin olive oil over the top and sprinkle on some salt and pepper. We eat it with mashed potatoes and steamed veggies, and the leftovers are reincarnated into chicken salad or chicken burrito bowls.
