Chicken and pork absorb and amplify flavors just as well as beef adds its own to any meal. Let's walk through a simple yet impressively delicious whole chicken preparation!
2)When working with raw meats, I like to have a bowl of soapy antibacterial water or a bowl of vinegar with a hand towel ready. A whole chicken requires a very hands-on process, so running to the faucet and soap over and over between steps will drive you crazy. Don't touch anything with raw chicken hands (the faucet, soap bottle, vegetables, knives, etc.) you don't plan on immediately sterilizing.
11) Serve and enjoy! This bird will last you a few meals, probably about 8. With the vegetables and everything, this came out to less than $2.50 a meal! To make broth with the carcass left over at the end of the week, put the carcass with all the leftover juices and stuffed vegetables in a pot and completely cover with water. Add a few more dashes of salt and pepper and boil for about 1.5-2 hours.
