My grandma always told me if you can’t cook a whole chicken then you will never find a husband. Lucky for me I can, and now I am engaged! But for reals, if you eat meat you should be able to make a roast chicken. It is a classic staple, one that you will make over and over again. I also love that it’s not just 1 meal but you can make a ton of variations of recipes depending on the season (right now lots of soups and warming foods).
BROTH: After eating the meat (or I usually take it off the bones to store it) I will put the bones, a little bit of apple cider vinegar and some herbs into a stock pot and fill with water, let simmer for 4-5 hours then strain. Store in glass in the fridge and sip throughout the day or you can freeze to use later.
Plus I made this recipe so you don't need any fancy tools like a thermometer. If you have your cast iron and oven and boom good to go.
