I'm making the Wishbone Chicken tonight. I thought I recalled the recipe called for a 6 pound chicken when I was at the store only to get home and find out it calls for a 4 pound chicken. Will this recipe still work? If so, what adjustments would you make?

Yes, you can! Oui, chef has a calculation in his roast chicken recipe that says to roast 15 minutes per pound:
Increase the butter and salt a bit to make sure you have enough to cover the additional surface area of the chicken.
