Salt crusted chicken.

Salt crusted chicken.

I made this roasted chicken months ago and the recipe was still here waiting for me.

I know now it’s not the right moment of the year to ask you to turn on the oven but I don’t want to wait any further and to take the risk to forget this recipe that is a sunday classic here in Italy.

Chicken, after all, is great cold too, paired with a green salad. 😀

This salt crusted kind of cooking is great for fish and poultry: both have a skin that protects meat from desiccation keepinkg it juicy and tender.

It’s not the right kind of cooking for beef/veal/pork roasts because they would miss a lot of juices.
