50 minutes is a long time for prepping a chicken. Is that the recipe that calls for something like 20 or 40 garlic cloves? Getting 40 cloves out of their skin would definitely take a minute. There’s that double bowl method but I’ve never tried it.

Your chicken looks good by the way. I’ve been craving roast chicken lately. I’ve always made the Zuni recipe. But I recently tried the buttermilk chicken recipe from Salt Fat Acid Heat & I’m going to stick with that one for a little while. Such a cinch.

^^^ I used Ina Garten's recipe, and the prep is simple:

Salt and pepper inside
Stuff it with lemon halves
Stuff in a full garlic head cut in half
Stuff in a bunch of fresh thyme
Brush with melted butter, then salt and pepper

Rough cut veggies, toss in oil and salt and pepper, throw it all in the pan, set the chicken on top, then roast for 90 minutes.

My issue:

I hate handling chicken, so I touch the chicken, wash my hands, touch the chicken again, wash my hands, etc. it's always bothered me that, when watching cooking shows, they'll wrestle with a raw chicken, then grab ahold of the paper towel dispenser, or the pepper grinder, and not worry about getting chicken slime everywhere.

Oh raw chicken is the worst, agreed! And yes, that always bothered me about cooking shows too! I think of it every time I’m handling chicken. I’ve gotten good about remembering to cut my lemons, set aside some salt in a seperate dish for sprinkling & stuff but there’s still always a few things that make me end up having to stop & wash hands way too many times while I’m the process.
