I made your Perfect Roast Chicken. The chicken was a bit dry and all of the vegetables were completely charred! What did I do wrong???

First, I would use an oven thermometer to make sure your oven temperature is accurate. (You can buy them at any hardware store!) Second, you don’t want to roast the chicken in a pan that's too big. The pan should be just big enough to hold the chicken and vegetables snugly, or it’s true, the vegetables will burn. I hope that helps!
