    Love the “French” presentation of the chicken. Good luck with your book tour. Quick question, since our return from our trip to Paris last month my husband has been playing French music. What is the song you have on your site?

      One of them is from Pink Martini…not even sure of the name, but google one of the refrains and you’ll find it! Thank you for good wishes!

      I’M SO GLAD!!! Now, get in the kitchen, roast that bird, and tell me how it went!

    What weight of a roasting chicken is in the lesson? I’m planning on roasting a 5 lb. bird? Would that change the roasting time?

    1. Susan

      Hello! That is a big bird! You will need to add about 20 minutes to the roasting time. Good luck and let me know what happens. Susan

          I’m so glad it was wonderful. The tough breast meat is to be expected; if it was inedible, that’s one thing, but if it simply had texture that’s another. There are some who say that Americans don’t like to chew their food; chickens here in France always have texture, but I’d have to share one with your wife to see whether or not she thought it was tough! Anywa, so glad it worked, and a smaller chicken IS a better bet.

    Followed the directions with a 4 lb bird. Turned out perfectly. The breast meat was succulent but not mushy!

      Randy – Yay! You followed the directions! I’m glad it was perfect. That’s the goal.

    I made this last night and it is delicious! Just wondering what is considered one serving for the nutritional information? Is that 2 prepared chicken breasts?

    1. Susan

      I’m not sure to understand your question. Generally one whole chicken feeds five to six; one breast – depending on size – is enough for two people.
