Our Go-To Roast Chicken Recipe + STAUB Cookware

Our Go-To Roast Chicken Recipe + STAUB Cookware

Roast chicken is my jam. Something magical happens to a chicken when it is roasted in the oven until it falls off of the bone. We often bake 2 or even 3 at a time so that we can use leftovers for chicken salad, sandwiches and soup with broth made out of the carcasses.

With such a versatile food I often find myself dressing it in ways that are simple. I find in our family the kids don’t want sauces and complex flavours but rather a juicy bird that can stand on its own. We usually use salt, pepper, and stuff the cavity with fresh herbs when we have them on hand. This time we had no fresh so I opted for poultry seasoning with the S&P. Started off at 350° for 1 hour while covered and then finished off at 450 with the foil removed allowed us to have a delicious fall-off-the-bone bird that we ended up adding to our Jigg’s Dinner.


While trying to be an adult I fell into a funk with my bakeware. I want to save on dishes and be able to serve my meals in the same dish they were made in but that only works if you have nice wares, which I did not. For our holiday gift guide we got to partner with  Zwilling & STAUB to check out their 2.5-quart rectangular dish.

This ceramic dish is microwave, broiler and freezer safe and can easily go between all three without getting ruined or exploding into a million pieces like some other bakeware I own. Although they are recommended to be washed by hand you can throw them in the dishwasher. staub ceramic cookware

I am going to be a bit shallow though and talk about how they look because I am crushing HARD! With the blue outside and the cream inside they are eye catching. The handles provide an easy way to hold the dish and the STAUB clearly present on the dish makes it known that it is quality ware. And underneath, oh the underneath, even though it is raised promises to not scratch surfaces and has the STAUB on it too. staub-1If you have some last minute shopping to do then head on over to the Hudson’s Bay Company stores and online at www.thebay.com.

    We don’t roast chicken too often. For some reason, we’re more likely to roast a turkey. But that looks amazing. And I love your idea of roasting more than one to use throughout the week in different dishes!

    I grew watching my mom always cooking poultry covered so I do the same thing. I don’t know why, that looks so good. I need to try different things, I’m so stuck in my ways!
