Pimiento cheese may not be one of the typical ingredients you reach for when you’re ready to roast a chicken, but hey—don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. This cooking method produces an insanely succulent, juicy bird with golden-crisp skin. You could also apply the same technique to individual skin-on thighs or breasts, as opposed to roasting the whole chicken. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F. Spread pimiento cheese evenly under skin and over breasts and thighs of chicken. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Place on a lightly greased rack set in a rimmed baking sheet. Roast in preheated oven until a thermometer inserted in thickest portion of thigh registers 165°F, about 55 minutes. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing.
