You are actually supposed to spread the legs out evening and basically flatten it but my cast iron skillet isn't large enough to do that. So you live when it and make due.
Here's what you need:
salt and pepper
olive oil or butter
Flip that baby over, lay it as flat as possible and press the breast bone to flatten it more.
Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands. And the cutting board and the shears.
Then wash your hands all over again. When you are done working with raw poultry, you should have washed your hands 537 times. Just sayin'...some people need to be reminded.
Spread out the carrots and potatoes as much as possible. The ones underneath get moist and tender while the ones on the top roast to perfection.
This is one dish that is just as good the next day. So hid some for lunch tomorrow because if your house is like mine, there usually aren't a lot of leftovers unless you plan for them!
Enjoy - Live, Laugh, Love
