About this item

Fox takes a time-honored classic and reinvigorates it by showing just how much variety and enjoyment you can spin from a simple roast. Classic and modern takes on roasting the bird include Greek Roast Chicken with Caper Butter, Roast Lemons, and Skordalia; and Roast Jerk Chicken with Pineapple Mint Salad. To use the surplus, there are healthful and delicious recipes, such as Winter Roast Chicken Salad with Fennel, Blood Orange, and Pistachio; and Lemon Chicken Soup.
