Planning to make roast chicken with bread and arugula salad for 6 people. I am using 2 whole chickens. Can I use a Cuisinart roasting pan instead of an iron skillet? A 10 or 12 inch skillet won't have enough room for 2 chickens.

I haven't tried roasting two chickens in a roasting pan, but I have doubled the recipe many times using two separate cast iron skillets- it works beautifully!
