Ina Garten's Go-To Roasting Pan For Her Famous Engagement Chicken
Ina Garten has a reputation for creating delicious, comforting recipes, such as her famous engagement chicken, which she recommends as a staple for romantic occasions.
The success of Garten's engagement chicken relies not only on her carefully-crafted recipe, but also on the use of a half-sheet pan to perfectly roast the whole bird.
The shallow sides of a half-sheet pan allow hot air to freely circulate around the chicken, which helps create a crispy skin on all of its sides and cooks the meat more evenly.
The flat surface and shallow sides of a half-sheet pan make cleanup easy, since you can simply line it with parchment paper or aluminum foil and throw it away afterward.
