Hot Tips From Food Network Kitchens' Katherine Alford:

For a fast weeknight meal, roast two half chickens instead of one whole bird. It takes just 35 minutes (see Food Network Magazine's Roast Chicken With Apple Slaw, pictured above). Use a rimmed baking sheet instead of a deep roasting pan (the short sides help the heat circulate evenly). And choose the convection setting on your oven if you have one: You'll get crisp, golden skin in a hurry.
