Sexy Saturday Night Roast Chicken



This chicken was too special to be my usual Friday night roast chicken, so I will reserve it for Saturday nights only, when chickens feel sexy and like to get dressed up.

I make the same boring, but delicious roast chicken every week.

I usually stuff the bird with fresh herbs, a quartered lemon, and rub with olive oil, sprinkle liberally w/ kosher salt and pepper.
Roast 425 for 70 minutes.

Well last night, I was feeling feisty!

CAUTION: FOOD PORN AHEAD
MUST BE AT LEAST 18 YRS OF AGE TO PROCEED








You know I love to clean naked chickens. I know, I am weird.



So to be a bit decadent, I stuffed prosciutto and sage leaves under the skin of a 4 lb. chicken, then massaged olive oil on top and sprinkled kosher salt over the skin.

Sounds erotic, doesn't it?



It wasn't.



Throw a lemon in the cavity and roast it the same way as I usually do. 425 degrees.

Let rest a few minutes before slicing.



This chicken was over the top. So succulent & juicy, served with those oh so sexy, roasted little white trees (cauliflower!).

You had me laughing here in the kitchen, all by myself. Too funny. It does look something to keep from the kiddies - and delicious too.

Oh my that is one sexy chicken!

Great shots -- erotica for the feathered set. I thought I was the only one who loves to handle uncooked poultry! I'll definitely make this later in the week. We enjoyed your herb-roasted pork loin and artichoke gratin for our Friday evening dinner (as well as the BBQ pizza mid-week). Will you be posting some Passover recipes for the upcoming Jewish holiday? Hope so!!

My guess is your visits are going to shoot up but not be your regular audience.

I should think of spiking my own posts with saucy vocab. That and namedropping the Martha Stewart bombshell for some reason.

Hi Stacey. I made a roasted chicken last night as well, but mine was no where near as sexy as yours ;). Yours looks really delicious!

LaDue & Crew said...

I love food porn! This one was particularly erotic though, lol. Fabulous sexy chicken, Stace!

Joy said...

This made me lmao! You reminded me instantly of my horrible and traumitizing (but now funny) first and last attempt at cooking naked birds! (I also love how you used the word naked as that is the word I ALWAYS use to tell my story, ppl think it's weird/funny!)

I actually can't stand handling naked birds! Eeewwwww!! Two Thanksgivings ago I was trying to be all brave and make my first Turkey and it turned out to be a disaster...I had a BIG naked turkey in my sink all day and was calling around to family and friends crying (yes really, I know) for someone to come to my rescue (no one came!) until my husband arrived home to me freaking out about it...I then proceeded to instruct him on what needed to be done from the living room! lol I was so completely grossed out and will never attempt it again...seeing your pics and reading your sexy poultry porn I can surprisingly handle just fine though!

Thanks for spicing things up this dreary monday morning!

Michele said...

whoa! You're not kidding. That certainly is food porn. I really want to try that!

Bob said...

Heh, awesome. That looks wicked good, I bet the prosciutto pushed it over the top.

The Food Hunter said...

That's one sexy chicken!

Sara said...

This looks amazing! Did the prosciutto get crispy?

Love the idea of the prosciutto! That's one hot chicken!!

Patsyk said...

I made roasted chicken on Sunday with roasted cauliflower... but, mine was definitely rated G and not sexy at all! LOL! Your new roasted chicken sounds absolutely amazing!

noble pig said...

That is such a great idea about the prosciutto! I'm stealing that one!

Proud Italian Cook said...

Stacey you naughty girl stuffing proscuitto up there! LOL!! I just read Joe's comment!!

melissa said...

Sexy indeed! You're hilarious. And that bit with the prosciutto and sage was inspired. I am so in love with roast chicken these days, I'm craving your plate.

Giff said...

nice! isn't everything better with prosciutto?!

Culinary Cory said...

It was around 11:30 p.m. last night when I read this on my IPhone. I giggled a little when I scrolled down to the food porn disclaimer.

The Japanese Redneck said...

Cute, I love roast chicken and have been cooking a lot of it lately.

Your chicken looks yummy.

zegliano said...

what is it about a roast chicken that is so gosh darn sexy?

Have you ever tried Ina's recipe where you slice the roasted chicken over croutons which then soak up all the juices and fat? Talk about sexy. Whew!

I did the more basic roasted chicken tonite with herbs, lemon, salt, pepper and olive oil as you described. It was my first time to cook a bird. Yummy!
