Brined Roast Chicken with Wine Jus

Brining poultry and meats before roasting is an age-old technique that adds moisture and enhances taste. Despite the saltiness of the brine, the result is not an overly salty bird but rather increased juiciness and a fuller flavor. The optimum soaking time for a large roasting chicken is 4 hours, but even a shorter time in the brine will make a flavorful difference. Accompany the chicken with roasted mixed vegetables, such as potatoes, carrots and onions.

Absolute Perfection
September 15, 2015
The simplicity of this recipe grabbed my attention along with the fact that we had every ingredient listed. I followed this recipe to the letter and found the results so much better than expected for such a simple process. I am not certain if the brining, the roasting method including turning the bird every thirty minutes, the combination of fresh herbs or the Wine Jus turned this into something special but it is most delicious. Moist, tender and flavorful, the dinner received and is still receiving raves. This was one of those rare times when I was able to fully enjoy my guests since cooking was stress free. This is now my go to roast chicken recipe! Thank you Williams and Sonoma.
PS Silicone coated tongs made turning the chicken easy and safer than other methods.
Pros: Easy, Impressive, Will Make Again, Adaptable, Appearance, delicious

Easy & Delicious!

Easy to make and a delicious outcome! Husband LOVED it, but alas, that means no leftovers. Will definitely make again, and if for guests, will cook 2 chickens. Moist and tender chicken, and the Au Jus was wonderful.
