Several years ago, I noticed a post on some random cooking site asking for help with dry roast chicken. Someone suggested the 'flipping' method described below. I've been using it ever since, and it works! The actual recipe is a very basic one I found in a little paperback book at the grocery. You can replace the Italian seasonings with any others you prefer, but I think you'll find the general method gives great results. Exact cooking time will vary somewhat according to weight, of course.
