HERB-ROASTED CHICKEN INSPIRED BY JULIA CHILD: JULIE & JULIA
Herb-Roasted Chicken inspired by Julia Child: Julie & Julia
If you've ever seen Julia Child in action, then you know she loved her birds. There's a great scene in one of her shows where she has several birds on a table and you can sense her passion in her cooking as she selects which bird she'll be cooking with today. It's that passion for cooking that inspires chefs and home cooks still to this day. It's that passion that makes one fearless. This recipe was inspired by Julia Child and is prepared by Danny Meyer and Chef Michael Romano. The secret to this deliciously moist chicken is to seasoning it up to a day before roasting. This allows the salt and pepper to penetrate the chicken and flavor it in a way that last-minute seasoning cannot. If roasting a kosher chicken, use only pepper since it has already been salted. We accompany the chicken with Creamy Polenta and Panzanella. You could also serve spinach, Mashed Potatoes, or turnips with satisfying results.
