I dont have 5 hours to spare whats the fastest way?
Fell free to raise the heat for it to cook faster, but this particular recipe is for a “slow & low” roasted chicken to preserve juiciness.
That must come out really juicy on a slow roast like that gotta try this. This is alomst like cooking a Roast beef. I can dig it.
