Roast chicken is the best dinner party meal by far, but making incredible roast chicken at home is no small feat. Luckily, we have some tricks up our sleeves. Secret #1: When roasting the chicken, put a quart of water in a separate pan into the oven as well. The extra water will prevent the meat from drying out. Secret #2: Baste the chicken by putting some white wine and lemon in a spray bottle. This will let you mist the bird but not rinse off the aromatics. Secret #3: Try not to cover the chicken once it is done. If you cover it, the meat will steam up, and it will taste reheated.
