Best Whole Roast Chicken St. Louis 2005 - Boston Market
At $7.49, a whole roast chicken from Boston Market is slightly more expensive than a similar bird from most St. Louis-area grocery stores, but that extra scratch is worth it just to see your dinner still roasting on the spit, not baking under a heat lamp. Take one home and you'll learn why a national chain has been built upon such a simple meal: The crisp, caramel-brown skin is buttery sweet and nearly melts in your mouth, while both white and dark meat are plump and juicy and need only a dash of salt to bring out their peak flavor. Finger-licking good? Hell, you might bite off a fingertip, trying to nibble every last bit of succulent meat from the bone.
