Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Rub the chicken, inside and out, with 2 t. of the oil and season with 1 t. salt and 1/4 t. pepper. Place in a roasting pan and cook for 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the radicchio, vinegar, rosemary, 1/2 t. salt, 1/4 t. pepper, and the 2 T. oil. Add to the pan and continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through (internal temperature of 180F) and the radicchio is soft and brown at the edges, about 25 minutes.
  4. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and let rest at least 10 minutes before carving. Divide the radicchio among individual plates and serve with the chicken.
