DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 450°; rub the chicken with the butter; season it with salt and pepper.
  • Five minutes before turning on the oven, place a cast-iron skillet on an oven rack set low in the oven.
  • When the oven is hot, about 10 minutes later, carefully place the chicken, breast side up, in the hot skillet.
  • Roast, undisturbed, for 30-40 minutes, or until an instant read thermometer inserted in the meaty party of the thigh reads 155°.
  • Remove from the oven, let rest 3-5 minutes, then carve and serve.
