    Cook #withme #stayhome - Join Molly Baz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she makes roast chicken and potatoes. This isn’t the crisp-skinned, high-heat roast chicken you’re probably familiar with. Instead, it’s a melt-in-your-mouth tender, schmaltzy, slow-roast version that’s more similar to rotisserie chicken-except (bonus!) it gets slathered in the funky-spicy-sweet gochujang. And while the meat might be the star of the show, don't discount those buttery-soft, nearly-confited potatoes, which cook gently in the chicken fat. Makes you wonder why you haven't always been roasting long-cooking vegetables-carrots, cauliflower, turnips (?!), winter squash, fennel-under the bird for a built-in side, huh?
    Check out the recipe here:

      Molly, for goodness sake stop touching your hair when you cook. Bad habit.

    2. Benn Alp

      This is a great recipe.

    3. Evan Smith

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="83">1:23</a> rubs raw chicken in hair

    4. igbatious

      U didn't temp the chicken tho

    5. Kentucky Hiker

      No hair net in a commercial kitchen? Not even a ponytail? I’m seriously dry heaving.

    6. haylbot

      I made this recipe last night and I think you should know the leftovers are even better the next day!

    7. Carnage Artistry

      Ahhh...the cross contamination is killing me. Touching raw meat then touching your face/hair and then the garbage handle ugggggghh. No. Salmonella. Molly be careful 😔

    8. Denisse Benitez

      Lmao that bqq sauce comment was too mean tbh. Molly was definitely a little too proud of that chicken but homegirl still went in too hard.

    9. Nicolas Montaudon

      wouldn't it be easier to put the chicken in the pan before the potatoes?

    10. Bill from accounting

      Why do they call it a test kitchen

    11. Cooking Under The Tree

      Looks very delicious

    13. SEOHEE LEE

      When she said gochujang chicken i thought i heard wrong. So i turned on the caption and i was like ☺️ Yes, I'm Korean hahaha

    14. Sam Cheng

      Is there a way to do this with cuts of chicken instead of a whole chicken? Let's say I have a whole bunch of chicken thighs? How would that affect the cooking temperature or time?

    15. The Dot Kin

      Perfectly roasted chicken by Molly with a slight burn by Sohla at the end.

    16. Ryan FitzAlan

      ok, super serious question: what is the deal with hand washing and touching meat?? but really i watched her touch everything around her with chicken hands......she even pulled her hair back right off patting the chicken dry. so im really confused cause i am crazy sketched about raw meat, and i always wonder how chefs manage it without just contaminating every surface, but in this she dosent even seem to care. whats up with that!!!???

    17. Mario Robles

      Chicken butt it the best, specially when grilled yum!

    18. greenbluemonkey

      OMG so hungry now for that roast chicken....while stuffing myself on chicken soup.

    19. Iain Wallington

      Use the kitchen twine to tie back your hair ! Gross. After patting dry your bird hand straight to the hair FFS tie back your locks or wear a hairnet.

    20. drogean

      if you close your eyes it sounds like Kristen Schaal is teaching you how to cook 😳

    21. molly bazzle

      "it tastes like K.C. masterpiece!" "what's that?" "that really bad sauce that you buy..."

    22. Xiomara

      I made this today! It was amazing... Thanks Molly!

    23. tony singh

      Why were you touching her butt Molly

    24. Cal0Pat

      Quarantine cook-along... yum, although my potatoes are quite bitter after the gochujang burned (over-caramelised?) quite early into the three hours cooking.

    25. Mathematech

      the oysters are the buttocks, the pope's nose is the tail

    26. Manwell Haumu

      Molly your personality is yummy ...your man is lucky to eat you up all the time ;)

    27. Norm Gorm

      This is literally where the Coronavirus was born... wash your hands! LLS

    28. Mike Paz

      Schmaltz is really a cooking term .....

    29. Danin Larksy

      parsons nose.

    30. Andrew Reyes

      I just made these. Soo Good!

    31. rsactuary

      My grandmother would call it “ the part that went over the fence last”

    32. Jeff Bergstrom

      @<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="652">10:52</a> KC Masterpiece comment killed the whole thing. She dumpstered Molly's cook.

    33. volts- ѧ

      Bet the editor missed 5 steps and decided "fuckit, who cares" here too.

    34. Brice Westerhold

      Just made this and it really is amazing, thanks BA!

    35. Nick Smith

      Chicken in pan before potatoes? Just a thought


      She’s wasting paper at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="76">1:16</a>

    37. Theresa Oborn

      Confirmed! I love cooking a chicken at a lower temperature until the ligaments have died and gone to heaven. I want to try that gochujang.

    38. D j

      Kc masterpiece. .. please. Molly s a better cook and host that you. .

    39. Eric Kugler

      Pretty good recipe. Guess Why?

    40. Madi Valdes

      I wish she would've taken the pan drippings reduced it with the honey,lime, and roasted garlic. Turn it into a nice sauce to drape over the chicken

    41. Avetor UAC

    44. Sofa Cat

      "I don't wanna lie to you anymore" LMAO SAME I LOVE U MOLLYZ

    45. Eliza Zahm

      Y'all are missing out if you don't have Gochujang in your house.

    46. Spookay T'is Me

      Too 👏 Much 👏 Salt 👏

    47. Spookay T'is Me

      The '"Chicken's Butt"... It's called the "Parson's Nose"

    48. Kane Danaher

      The parsons nose is the best treat when it's golden and crisp.

    49. ap3b0y

      So I just made this. Added a bit of chili flakes because spice is life. This might be my new lo effort goto. Very nice! Also, now I am wondering about miso, bacon, and garlic?

    50. chding zuure

      Anyone else scared of when the new BA content is going to dry up because of all the craziness?

    51. Edwidge Saimbang

      Of all the ba chefs, molly is the worst

    52. Trace Kerr

      Wipes raw chicken tucks hair behind ear. I’m screaming

    53. beartastic

      What what?

      1. chding zuure

        Touching chicken then dipping the fingers in salt? isn't the whole salt vessel contaminated?

    54. Vaughan Hamilton

      how can she not know it's called the pope's nose? She's a cook

    55. urizla83

      Say whole words.

    56. Mark Correa

      Please change title to: "Molly makes really bad KC Barbecue Chicken"...I'm ☠️

    57. LWRC

      Nice video. Why do millennials always abbreviate certain words and not use proper English? Say the word pepper rather than pep!!! Just like USselrs saying merch instead of merchandise!!! You folks so malnourished that you can't squeeze the syllables out?!!! Come on people!!

    58. Samathor

      why is the color of this video so off?

    59. Celina Matti

      The sunset 😍

    60. vinasu maaj

      I cant be the only one who thinks Molly looks and sounds like a Bob's Burgers character but irl

    61. Halima Talib


    62. Peter Platt

      Did she peel the ginger?

    63. f haghi

      Molly, remove your ring before cooking please. You squeezed the lemon and the juice washed all the germs under your ring on to the food. Not clever!

      1. vinasu maaj

        The way that Americans pronounce gochujang causes me actual physical pain

    64. Jasmine W

      Cross-contamination everywhere!

    65. Naturally Nerdful a.k.a Krys

      So essentially, BA just discovered tsofi...

    66. Jolene Gov

      Wow, that was an awkward ending to a video. Way to go, Sohla. :/

    67. Marie c

      This was D E L I C I O U S ! Going to remake this for sure. I used purely bone-in skin-on chicken thighs. Dark meat for the win.

    68. jameyhaz

      Touching chicken then dipping the fingers in salt? isn't the whole salt vessel contaminated?

    69. seeriu ciihy

      Pat's chicken dry immediately runs finger thru hair. Seasoned chicken wipes hands on chicken blotted paper towel.

    70. John William


    71. Lexi Zgud

      I made this a couple of weeks ago. It was *so* good despite that I used a gochujang sauce, rather than paste. Now I am stocked up on the real gochujang paste and can't wait to make it again. Thank you for this easy, comforting and exciting recipe.

    72. Ray Larkin


      1. seeriu ciihy

        That's my favorite method of trussing too! Never tried it in the kitchen though. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


      Thank you for noting "filmed in 2019"

    74. Kim Collects

      This popped up in my subscription feed the other day there, as I had a full chicken in the fridge and was interested to see what BA did with theirs. I just happened to have the same gochujang paste in my cupboard (I don't usually have the same ingredients in my house and would go out to get them when I need them, so was pleasantly surprised that I had everything for a change! ), so that made my dinner plans easy! Turned out super nice actually and now using the leftovers for a soup today! :D

    75. SuperCookieGaming

      wait is that why people say “guess what? chicken butt!”

    76. Ron fowler

      The butt is called the Parson's nose in England.

    77. Josh P

      Is there a good alternative for the gochujang? I don’t do good with anything hot. Would a bbq sauce make due?

    78. Ji Kweon

      The way that Americans pronounce gochujang causes me actual physical pain

    79. Hederoth

      Hey Molly, you need to do something about your hair. It doesn’t look too appetizing when you first touch the chicken and then your hair. Especially in these virus times!
