Preheat the oven to 375º F (190º C). Place the chicken on a rotisserie spit and roast in preheated oven for 1¾ hours, or until chicken is golden and crisp.


Turn off the oven and remove roasted chicken. Transfer to a serving platter. Serve it with roast potatoes and a green vegetable or a tossed salad.

Oven Roasted Chicken Breasts Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary or thyme
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • dash of freshly ground black pepper
  • whole bone-in chicken breasts with skin
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) dry white wine
  • 14 oz (420 ml) defatted reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons arrowroot or cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°F (218°C). Place a rack in a roasting pan or large ovenproof skillet; lightly oil the rack or spray it with nonstick cooking spray.

Step 2

With the side of chef's knife, mash garlic to paste with 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Step 3

In a small bowl, combine the mashed garlic with a parsley, rosemary or thyme, lemon zest, and pepper. Press the breastbone of each whole chicken breast with the heel of your hand to flatten slightly. Discard any visible fat.

Step 4

Carefully separate the chicken skin from the flesh with your fingers. Stuff the herb mixture between the flesh and the skin.

Step 5

Place the chicken breasts on the prepared rack and roast for about 35 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center. Transfer the roasted chicken breasts to a carving bowl, and cover to keep warm.

Step 6

Pour the dripping from the pan into small bowl and chill in the freezer. Add wine to the roasting pan and bring to a boil, stirring to scrape up any brown bits. Boil until reduced by half,3 to 5 minutes to intensify the flavors. Skim the fat from chilled pan dripping and add the drippings to the sauce.

Step 7

Whisk arrowroot or cornstarch mixture into the sauce. Cook, whisking, until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Stir in mustard. Taste and adjust seasonings. Remove the skin and carve the roasted chicken breasts into thin slices. Serve with the sauce alongside.
