With a whole roast chicken, you fill the Sunday mood at the table – without the need to spend all Sunday in the kitchen. Five recipes that we especially like.
“I want every farmer to have a chicken in a pot on Sunday,” said Henry IV.

It’s a shame, because a golden-brown, herb- or garlic-flavored roast chicken in the center of the table really sets the mood for Sunday — even Tuesday night.
Chicken with lemon from the oven
Lemons, greens, potatoes – according to this recipe, the side dish is already prepared. Lemon Chicken is a classic recipe that, after a few tries, you’ll whip up without thinking too much and write on a recipe card for your kids when they move out.
Oven-Glazed Orange Chicken
If you want to go a little faster, poultry shears will help to remove the backbone (it’s easier than it sounds). Then the whole chicken can be unfolded and cooked evenly. We made it with orange glaze and cranberries.
