And I have these twisty tie things, that truss a chicken or turkey. I am sure you could find them in any kitchen store. They are much easier to use than string and can be used time and again. And go right into the dishwasher. My chicken looks like an alien though ~
Here is the chicken right from the oven, after I removed the twisty tie thing. The skin comes out golden brown and crisp. My bird was only 3lbs, so I roasted it for 1 hour and 15 minutes and it was done perfectly.
I just poured a little sauce right on top of the fennel, potato and chicken. Yum.
And thanks Ina, you are so right, this is just perfect.
Here's a link to Ina Garten's recipe. Enjoy ~
