Sesame-Crusted Roast Chicken

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a small bowl whisk together soy sauce, 1 Tbsp. of sesame oil, sesame seeds, ginger, garlic, and black pepper; set aside. Pat chicken dry; season with salt. Fold legs up over breast. Tie legs together with 100% cotton kitchen string. Twist wing tips under back.
  2. Heat a 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat until very hot, 3 to 5 minutes. Add remaining sesame oil to skillet; heat 30 seconds. Place chicken breast side down in the skillet; sear 3 minutes or until golden and crusty. Turn chicken over and sear 3 minutes more. Remove skillet from heat.
  3. Scatter potatoes around chicken. Pour the soy sauce mixture over chicken and potatoes. Roast 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the thighs registers 175 degrees F, stirring potatoes and spooning the skillet drippings over chicken once or twice during cooking. If sauce evaporates during roasting, add broth. Remove skillet from oven. Cover chicken; let rest 5 minutes. Sprinkle potatoes with parsley before serving.

This was a delicious change from your typical roasted chicken. It was very flavorful. I added carrots and onions to the potatoes in the pan. This recipe is a keeper!

Amazing recipe! The sesame oil does smoke a bit while heating it, but it was worth it. Easy and delicious!

I don't have a cast iron skillet large enough, so I used a metal baking pan and lined it with aluminum foil. Worked perfect.

Very nice flavor. I served with a simple stir fry and rice. Delish!
