Roast rooster is a tried-and-true dinner. Chef Jamie Oliver is a rooster tremendous fan, with a whole chapter devoted to the hen in his new cookbook, “One: Easy One-Pan Wonders,” out now.
The chapter, known as “Celebrating Rooster,” options such recipes as Cajun rooster traybake, candy & bitter roast rooster, juicy tahini rooster and cheerful rooster caesar. One in all our favorites is the rosemary roast rooster, which Oliver says is “completely scrumptious,” including that it is creamy and beautiful.”
The concept behind that recipe is to make use of inexpensive cuts of rooster legs and thighs, put them collectively in a pan after which let your oven deal with the laborious work.
“I am actually assured that if you happen to prepare dinner this, you may be actually blissful. It is a win-win,” he says. “It is like a house run. There is no approach it is not going to be scrumptious.”

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Put the rooster into a big chilly shallow casserole pan and place on a excessive warmth. Fry for 10 minutes, or till golden throughout, turning repeatedly, whilst you peel and finely slice the garlic, and wash, trim and really finely slice the leeks.
Decide and roughly chop the rosemary leaves, then add to the pan with the garlic and leeks, season with sea salt and black pepper, combine effectively and prepare dinner for a few minutes to melt barely.
Be sure the rooster is skin-side up, then pour within the cider, half-drain and add the beans, and roast for 45 minutes, or till the rooster pulls simply away from the bone.
