Q: I'm bored with my standard roast chicken. Any suggestions?
Try rubbing the chicken with different herbs and adding vegetables to the roaster to make an easy one-pan meal, suggests chef Art Smith of Table Fifty-Two in Chicago. Inspired by English food writer Nigella Lawson—"She made me her version of chicken Vesuvio, with oregano and artichokes, at her swish London apartment"—he creates his own variation here, throwing spicy chorizo and green beans into the mix along with white wine and broth for a juicier bird. "A dish can be simple and scrumptious at the same time," Smith says.
