A whole pastured chicken – simply prepared – is always clutch. It can be quite a process to infuse a chicken with flavor and get it fully cooked, while also keeping meat moist. I brined. I marinated. I “dry aged” in my fridge overnight. I’ve buttered the breasts and stuck garlic in all the nooks and crannies.
But inevitably, my chicken was rarely as moist or flavorful as what I’d enjoy in a high-end restaurant.
That is, until now…
