Roast Chicken is in Vogue

Here is a chicken recipe I believe Julia Child would love! It is flavored with the one item every dish can't live without - Butter!
This particular recipe is from Food in Vogue by Maxime de La Falaise. It has recipes from David Niven, Vidal Sassoon, Jimmy Duraante, Jacqueline Onassis, Bill Blass, Yogi Berra, Bob Hope, Princess Grace of Monaco, Bing Crosby and many others. The book has copywrites from 1942 to 1981.

This particular recipe belongs to This particular recipe belongs to Kitty Carlisle Hart. She was a spokeswoman for the arts and a regular panelist on the television game show, To Tell the Truth. 

This recipe is quite interesting. What makes it different than most is the instruction to turn the chicken on its side and cook it for 10 minutes, and then turn it to the other side and cook it for 10 minutes. And when you are done roasting this chicken you put it under the broiler.  Maybe this chicken dish was created before the invention of the rotisserie. This recipe has technique.

This chicken is moist and juicy because of all that lovely butter.
