Whole Chicken Pie

There’s a eating theater upwards the street that serves a whole chicken wrapped inward brioche, together with always since I saw it, I’ve wanted to create that video. I’ve never genuinely had it, since it’s $100, together with y’all bring to social club it a twenty-four hr catamenia inward advance. I beloved chicken, but I mean value I’ll salve my hundred dollar bills for to a greater extent than sensible things, similar lighting Cuban cigars.

Anyway, I was planning on doing a bread-wrapped bird, when I saw a photograph for what looked similar a pie crust wrapped chicken. Suddenly, I remembered doing something similar inward culinary school, except they made us telephone band the pie dough, “pate brisee,” for some reason, but same idea. That’s when plans changed, together with the brioche went farewell bye.

When bread’s used, y’all ordinarily bring to peel the soft, flabby peel off earlier enjoying the meat, but that’s non equally large an effect here. Pie crust doesn’t insulate nearly equally well, together with hence the peel gets cooked to a greater extent than thoroughly. This was really noticeable on the breasts, where the peel together with crust fused together into some kind of marvelous hybrid. The thicker peel or hence the thighs didn’t homecoming out quite equally well, but fifty-fifty if y’all create clitoris off the skin, the meat is moist, tender, together with really flavorful.

If y’all purpose a iii 1/2 pound chicken for this, together with hence the roasting/resting fourth dimension should function out, but if your plane is larger, you’ll bring to add together to a greater extent than time, together with should likely purpose a thermometer to banking concern agree your work. By the way, this is a technique video, together with everything from the stuffing, to the pan sauce ingredients should endure adapted to your tastes, but no affair what y’all use, I genuinely create promise y’all plough over this a induce soon. Enjoy!
