One pan easy garlic thyme roast chicken with cauliflower is the one recipe you need and the only recipe you will ever use for whole roasted chicken. Perfect every time, crispy skin, juicy and flavorful. A complete meal made in a cast iron skillet.
If I had to pick one recipe that I think everyone should have in their back pocket it would be a whole roasted chicken. It is the simplest pleasure, a divine joy. When done well, perfectly crispy and juicy, loaded with flavor, and honestly quite easy. Yet, I think it is a recipe that most people are quite intimidated by.
The first time I roasted a chicken I screwed it up. Famously.
