Serves 2 to 4

1 chicken (about 4 pounds)
1 tablespoon kosher salt
Smoked Spanish paprika

Preheat the oven to 400°.

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels, and sprinkle with the salt and smoked Spanish paprika to taste. Set in a cast-iron skillet, and roast uncovered until the chicken is tender and the juices run clear, about 1 hour. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before carving. Serve with roasted potatoes or vegetables.

Note: Restaurant critic Phyllis Stein-Novack recommends the local chickens from Godshall’s Poultry in Reading Terminal Market.
