I've been looking for some recipes for the autumn season, and I think I've found a new favorite! The recipe for Cast-Iron Roast Chicken with Caramelized Leeks from Bon Appetit was easy to make, and nothing compares to cast iron. With cast iron, no flipping is required and there is no unappealing pale, flabby underside.
Cast-Iron Roast Chicken with Caramelized Leeks is a fairly easy recipe that makes 4 servings with a prep time of one hour for the marination and a cook time of an hour and a half. If anyone is interested in checking out the instructions, please click on the image up above.
The following ingredients were used:
- 1 3 1/2–4-pound whole chicken
- Kosher salt
- 3 leeks, white and pale green parts only, halved lengthwise
- 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Serves 4
- Easy to make
- Cooked with cast iron
I really recommend this recipe for the thanksgiving or autumn season!
