    Default Arrrrrugh!


    Okay, innocently half listening Ina Garten doing an "Ask Ina"... she's
    talking about roasting chicken on a bed of vegetables. I'd not paid
    attention to the intro with her reading a letter, but I'm thinking I
    can back it up later if I need to. She says to put everything into a
    roasting pan that (I don't remember her exact words, but she's saying
    to use one that's not too big - yeah, like I have several roasting
    pans in different "sizes") and then says "because"... now I'm
    interested, so I hit the volume up button on the remote but I hit the
    channel +/- button instead, so I lost everything and can't back it up
    to review now. Grrrrr! I HATE that remote - whoever designed it must
    have been left handed because the buttons are reversed for my right
    handed purposes.

    Pour enough water or stock over the bed of veggies to keep them from
    burning. Replenish as needed and reserve, after bird is done, for
    sauce or gravy making.

    My remotes too... there's no industry standard... I really don't care
    which side so long as they are all the same.

    But what is the point of roasting vegetables if you don't get some of
    that? That browning adds a huge amount of flavor. I roast chicken and
    root vegetables frequently and use a large enough pan to make sure the
    vegetables actually roast. If not I think it is a lot like wrapping a
    potato in foil and calling it a baked potato.

    I used to sit the bird on top of the bed of veggies and pour a bit of
    water in to just cover the veggies. Now a days i prefer to roast the
    chicken on a rack above the veggies. Makes it easier to baste and the
    chicken (with turnings) gets evenly done all over. If one sits the bird
    directly on the veggies the bottom of the bird gets braised. I think
    this is more an aesthetic preference on my part than anything else.
