Just curious, what are you roasting at 450 F?
Like I said, I am new to cooking. I'm not sure if this is the "right" temperature, but I used the recipe from PBS's Everyday Food for tandoori chicken. It's directions were to roast it at 475 F.
Well, it didn't taste as good as when I have it in the Indian restaurants. But ever since then, I have been roasting chicken breast at 450 because, well, I don't know, I guess I just assumed that since at 475 it was a little dry (I think indian is supposed to be a little dry, well at least the chicken, because that is how the tandoori is at an indian restaurtant i go to), i would lower it by 25 degrees...
