No matter which day of the week I happen to roast a chicken, it always feels like a Sunday dinner to me. Pulling a burnished chicken from the oven feels like a step above my usual haphazard meals, and special in its very simplicity. Here are a few different takes on roast chicken that have caught my eye recently. A chicken doesn't need much more than a rub of good olive oil and a sprinkle of salt to make it tasty. Sometimes I crave that those straightforward flavors more than anything else. Other times, I throw open my cupboards and begin rooting around for spices and sauces that will transform my Sunday chicken into something extra-tasty. • Sichuan Pepper-Salt Roasted Chicken from GourmetThai Sticky Chicken from Eat Little BirdHoney and Cinnamon Moroccan Style Roast Chicken from Bon AppétitYogurt-Marinated Roast Chicken from Fine CookingBourbon Brown Sugar Chicken from Sweet on YouMexican Tropical Chile Roast Chicken from SunsetOrange Lacquered Roast Chicken from Parsley, Sage, Desserts, and Line Drives What is your favorite take on roast chicken?
