I make a fantastic roast chicken!! I disect away the skin, and sink fresh garlic cloves in stategic places, and in the cavaity of course. I butter the skin, put salt & pepper on the skin as well. In the same roasting pan, I put baby carrots, baby red potatos, or I cut up big red potatos, and whole mushrooms. I put fresh rosemary & thyme on the veggies, as well, as a little butter, and I lightly spray the veggies with oil. Then roast the whole thing.
With the chicken carcass, I make a wonderful chicken soup. I put the carcass in a crock pot, along with a whole onion, and water, then slow cook it over night. All the meat just falls off it. The next day, I fish out all the bones, cartilege etc. out. I use a collander and drain & collect the liquid from the carcass cooking overnite. I use that for my base. I cut up the chicken, meat, cut up carrots, celery, and the onion that had been cooking overnite. I add a little bit of rice. I slow cook that until the veggies are tender. And there you go, a nice chicken soup.
