Roasted Chicken on a Bed of Winter Vegetables: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 8
Prep Time: 30 min.
Cook Time: 60 min.
Total: 1 hr. 30 min.
This classic is a winter favorite, a whole roasted chicken cooks alongside root vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 lb broiler-fryer chicken
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 med onion, peeled and quartered
  • 3 sprigs thyme
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 3 med leeks, white part only, washed carefully and thinly sliced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into thin sticks or rounds
  • 6 red potatoes, quartered
  • 4 med parsnips, peeled and cut into thin sticks
  • 1 1/2 cups dry white wine
  • 1 14 oz can chicken broth

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 425F.
  • Rinse chicken thoroughly. Put lemon, onion, and thyme into the cavity of the chicken. Sprinkle the skin of the chicken liberally with salt and pepper.
  • Scatter the leeks, carrots, potatoes, and parsnips over the bottom of a roasting pan. Sprinkle the vegetables with salt and pepper.
  • Set the chicken on top of the vegetables. Pour white wine and chicken broth over chicken and vegetables.
  • Roast the chicken for 1 hour until the skin is browned, the juices at the joint of the thigh run clear when pierced with a knife, and a thermometer inserted into the flesh of the thigh registers 180 F. Stir vegetables and baste chicken with juices occasionally during cooking.
  • Transfer the chicken to a cutting board. Lift the vegetables into a serving bowl and pour or ladle the juices into a pitcher or gravy boat. Carve the chicken and serve with vegetable juices.
