I "road tested" this recipe with the largest roast chicken I could find. Sure, it came out very juicy and had a beautiful color, but in the end I was disappointed. My husband said it tasted rubbery, and to me it was too salty. I think tenting it "steamed it" (as referenced by another reviewer). Maybe it would work better with turkey, as it is not as tender as chicken, but even so, it needed something, like different herbs on the skin; for me, the flavor was just not there. I did put butter under the skin and put celery, onions and carrots in the roasting pan and in the bird, and it was still lacking. The best thing I could say was that it made a good gravy. I am going to use tonight's leftovers to make chicken soup and use my regular turkey recipe this Thanksgiving.
