Roasting the Perfect Chicken

Written by Danielle Travali.

Chicken is so popular because it's low in calories and is very versatile--you can serve it in so many different ways.

However, many people believe roasting a chicken requires a culinary degree and a whole lot of patience. Not true! It's easy, and actually rewarding once its finished. I'll show you exactly how to do it. You'll be pleasantly surprised, and you'll thoroughly enjoy the result. 

Buying your chicken

When you shop at the supermarket for your chicken, you may want to purchase a cage-free chicken. Why? Because chickens that aren't marked cage-free are usually given foods filled with pesticides and chemicals, and are often raised inhumanely--in tight cages with many other chickens, increasing the risk for disease.

Chances are, you'll want to go home and show off to your friends by cooking these sauces in your own kitchen. But if you've got little-to-no experience making sauce, it's a good idea to start with the basics. And what better way to begin than with a traditional marinara sauce? A staple to nearly all Italian cooks, marinara is simple to make.

We'll take you through the process right now. Before you know it, you'll be moving on to more complex Italian sauces!

First thing's first: know that you don't need to go and crush up fresh tomatoes to make marinara sauce--not unless you really want to. Canned tomatoes work extremely well.
