Cacio e Pepe Roast Chicken

Inspired by the flavors of a classic Italian cacio e pepe pasta, this roast chicken is easy enough to make on a weeknight, but special enough for a dinner party or holiday gathering. The outside of the chicken is crusted in fruity peppercorns, salty Parmesan cheese and sharp pecorino, giving the skin a wispy frico-like texture. Because of the natural fat in a whole chicken, we only use a scant tablespoon of butter to help the skin crisp and impart flavor to the meat.
