Classic Roast Chicken Ultimate Guide | Jacques Pépin Cooking at Home | KQED

Jacques Pépin shares a gloriously simple but detailed recipe for classic roast chicken. He includes techniques for how to remove the wishbone like a pro, how to truss a chicken with twine to keep its shape, how to make sure a chicken is evenly roasted, and a great way to baste it using only its own juices, butter, potato starch, and chicken stock.

Once the chicken is roasted, Jacques teaches us how to carve and present the dish with a side of fresh watercress. Elegant and delicious, this roast chicken recipe is a classic for a reason.

What you’ll need:
3 1/2 lb Chicken, 1 tbsp butter, salt and pepper, 1/2 cup chicken stock, dash of soy sauce (for color), 1 tsp potato starch, watercress

  4. After a long week – I love spending Friday nights watching Jacques' videos – no matter how old they are… there's something so soothing watching and listening to him. I'm reminded of my grandparents who taught me how to cook and listening to their stories of growing up in the 1920s; or them telling me about their parents who were born in Italy – and how they learned to cook from their parents.

    Jacques is just delightful. <3

  5. Simply Awesome. God Bless you. I have watched you for years and learned so much. Thank You

  6. It's just absurd, really. Every time I watch a Pepin video I can't help but want to go to the store and buy whatever is needed for the particular educational video. Thanks, Doc.

    Bref… quel amour !! ❤️????????
