Organic Free Range Chicken

We've been buying organic chicken from Costco for years. After the Whole 9 seminar, we moved up to organic, free range chicken. The verdict? Three out of four family members felt there was a real taste difference. So the scales are tipped in favor of free range.

I cook my chicken in an All-Clad horizontal roaster that works just like beer-can chicken. The arm has a reservoir that holds about three ounces of wine. The air can circulate all around the chicken during convection roasting. Really crisp skin and an incredibly moist interior. But the best part?

For the last forty minutes of cooking, I load up the base pan with vegetables for roasting (last night it was broccoli and garlic). The Whole 9 Nazis would be horrified as the veggies get basted in chicken fat. The Taste Nazis would acknowledge that never in the history of modern civilization have veggies ever tasted so good.

Wine pairing: Pinot Noir
