A whole roasted chicken is one of the best dishes a home cook can have in their arsenal. It’s simple, it’s comforting, and because it involves a whole bird, it looks like it requires far more skill to cook than it actually does. But sometimes it’s nice to eat a chicken prepared by a professional, with professionally applied spices and a professionally controlled fire. As a bonus, there’s a world of roasted and rotisserie chicken in Chicago — literally, since you can order whole birds in Indian, South American, European, and plain old American restaurants. Some are fancy, served on china plates on white tablecloths, and some are to-go only, transported in a styrofoam container. But all of them on this list are delicious.
