Roasted Chicken


  • A 2-3 pound whole chicken
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, plus 1 tablespoon leaves
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • Juice of 2 lemons; use FreshForce™ Citrus Press (reserve squeezed halves)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 450.
  2. Using FreshForce™ Poultry Shears, cut chicken into 4 roasting parts (breasts and thighs with drumsticks)
  3. Pile the rosemary leaves, garlic, 2 teaspoons salt and the red pepper flakes on a cutting board, then mince and mash using Palm™ Mincer. Transfer the paste to a bowl.
  4. Stir in the juice of 1 lemon and the olive oil. Add the chicken and turn to coat.
  5. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, skin-side down, cover and cook until the skin browns, about 5 minutes. Turn the chicken; add the mushrooms and potatoes to the skillet and drizzle with the juice of the remaining lemon.
  6. Add the rosemary sprigs and the squeezed lemon halves to the skillet; transfer to the oven and roast, uncovered, until the chicken is cooked through and the skin is crisp, 20 to 25 minutes.
  7. Serve on a platter with Twist’n Sprout(™) Brussels Sprouts with Sweet Potatoes.
  8. Enjoy!
