    Am I the only person here who actually loves crispy skin rather than juicy meat? Plus, They even said: Because the bird is dry-brined, the meat will be *exceptionally juicy*

    I see a lot of videos where they're just blasting the heat on these poor chickens. If I put a 4 lb chicken for an hour at 450, it will be blackened, not roasted. Unless my oven is screwed up. I don't see how these people are cooking at those high temps. That chicken does look big though. I usually cover it at 375 for 45 minutes and then turn it to convection bake at 425 for 20 minutes and it turns out great. That chicken in the video looks too perfectly cooked.

    If you have the time, a wet brine for 12 hours, then leaving it uncovered overnight for another 12 hours will give you the same result. It's a lot of time, but the flavor is better and the meat is juicier. If you're just concerned about crispy skin, I guess this is the way to go, though. No garlic, no herbs, no lemon, and most shocking of all; no butter. I don't know about all that. This is not USDA prime beef, it's a chicken. It takes a bit more than salt and pepper for it to be good. Unless she's using one of those $30 chickens from Greensbury's Farm.

    I guess in the end, it's whatever works for you.

    what happened to the skin once you add an herb compound butter under it?

  • Kayla Horton
    Kayla Horton 20 days ago

    I agree with letting it sit with the salt and pepper in the fridge and letting it rest at room temp. But I always put butter under the skin to make sure it stays juicy and the spices in the cavity are also important in my eyes..

    Your chicken is so huge, I thought it was a turkey. 😅
    If you ever have a chance to come to Indonesia, you should try our special chicken breed, we called it #AyamKampung means _country chicken_ it breeds in farm, with organic feeds and environment. That grow the meat to be moist and less chemical tastes.💐😊
    5:42 happy to see you enjoy it.

    I like my method better: Put chicken into a casserole pot. No need to trussel it. Cover the pot and bake at 180 celcius for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. To get a crisp skin, just turn up the heat for 15 minutes at the end. Doing it this way keeps the chicken as juicy as it can get.

    Stop with the hating and just enjoy/appreciate the video. A real cook should always know to add their own flavors/twist to every suggested recipe. Salt and pepper is the foundation to most dishes. Food should always be surrounded by love.

    What you should actually do is keep it as moist as possible..
    What I do for a 2.5kg chicken is dry the chicken, rub a herb and garlic butter under the skin of the breast and on the skin then salt, stuff with a mixture of bread, herbs, garlic, lemon juice, cream and an egg thats been run through a mini food processor.
    Put it in a high sided roasting tray on top of vegetables like carrot celery zucchini and onions, and roast covered with foil for an hour on 220c middle rack.
    Then remove from the tray, top the juices and vegetables into a pot to make the gravy base. And return roast to the pan but on top of a rack and uncovered for an hour on the middle rack at 200c.
    That gets the skin crispy and keeps the chicken moist af. It’s so good.

  • XoletteLife

    I just made this, but had to use a non-air chilled chicken. To get to 160 degrees, I had to cook an extra 17 minutes. (I usually cook until 5 degrees before doneness, since the last 5 degrees is achieved on the counter-- though in this case, perhaps I should have waited untill 165 to take it out). My only issue is that I waited only 5 minutes of rest to carve, which caused a ton of liquid and come out. Perhaps, that's because I used the non air chilled chicken. It came out a light golden brown, rather than a dark golden brown like in the video, but the skin was still crispy. For the haters posting about washing the chicken/only seasoning with salt and pepper, rinsing with water won't clean off the bacteria-- high heat will do that, and salt+pepper was enough seasoning for the chicken. Also, my chicken came out moist, not dry, as taking out meat at the required temperature should do that. Overall, tasted great! Thanks, Tasty!

    For all of you concerned about washing the chicken before cooking - if you know of any bacteria that can survive 450* Celsius for about an deserves to live. That's directly from world renowned chef, Jacques Pepin, who has written over 27 cook books.

    I love how many people are getting triggered from "Don't wash your chicken." Even though national health services around the globe agree.
    And then they will still go "I don't care what anyone says, I'm still doing it." Shows how ignorant and stuck in their ways some people are. They'll ignore fact right in their face to continue to believe what they want to believe purely because they want to believe it.

    The best way to ensure crisp chicken skin with juicy meat is to inject brine inside the muscles of the chicken with a syringe half way through when it's cooking.
