Even if you're not all that comfortable in the kitchen, there are a few things a man should master—if not for himself, then for the occasions when he has guests. At the top of that list has to be a classic roast chicken. It's a homey dish that anyone (who's not a vegan) loves. It's anything but pretentious, yet it's impressive and satisfying. And the best news is that the less complicated you make a roast chicken, the better your results seem to be. This is a tried and true recipe. More of a game plan than a recipe, really. Some salt and pepper, a little butter and a cast iron pan is all you really need. You prep your bird, then roast it at high heat until the skin is bronzed and crisp and the meat juicy and flavorful.
