This is, hands-down, the best roast chicken I have ever pulled out of my oven. I have tried so many different recipes and tricks and flips and rubs and butter bastes, etc., but this wins every category — taste, moist meat, crispy skin and EASE! Go get yourself a birdie and get brining.
If you have feta cheese already swimming in brine (as I did), go ahead and use that brine rather than blend water and feta chunks. Just make sure you cover your remaining cheese with water afterward and don’t wait too long to finish it up.
