Turn on the AC and make this Sunday. Or just turn on the oven and stay out of the kitchen.
Take a four- to five-pound chicken, rub it down with about a third cup of pesto, getting under the breast skin and inside the cavity. Add about three chopped apples to the roasting pan, with a little bit of wine or broth, and bake in an oven at 365 degrees until done. (A digital thermometer should register 165 at the breast, which should take around 15 minutes a pound.)
