Thomas Keller's Favorite Roast Chicken
75 mins (prep 10, cooking 65)
6 ingredients
4 servings
Those of you who know your Chef's, must be familiar with the fabulous Thomas Keller. Also, I am a BIG fan of high-heat cooking ( I have a great high heat turkey recipe posted here #145046) and that is how this is prepared. It is taken from his book, and his comments are in the directions. I was going to remove them, but then I decided it is part of the charm of this great chicken meal. This recipe is some work, but well worth the effort! Cooks Note: To truss chicken, place it on a tray with legs toward you. Tuck wing tips under bird. Cut piece of kitchen twine about 3 feet long and center it on top of neck end of breast. Lift neck end of bird and pull twine down around wings and under chicken, then bring ends up over breast toward you and knot twine, pulling it tight to plump breasts. Bring ends of twine around ends of drumstick and straight up. Tie as before to pull drumsticks together and form a compact bird. Tie again to secure knot.
