Dinner tonight: Nigella Lawson’s Tarragon Chicken

leave a comment »

Here’s the recipe, and here are my lessons learned: Mix marinade in a bowl in the morning and marinate the chicken for a day, covered, turning it occasionally. The plastic bag in the refrigerator doesn’t work: olive oil solidifies. I could not find a “3-4 lb chicken,” if they still exist. The smallest I could find was a 6-lb chicken. It took 40 minutes.

Absolutely delicious. Definitely a repeat. Here’s a good guide to spatchcocking a chicken. I used a lot of tarragon in the marinade, and I used two lemons and 1 cup olive oil, because it’s a 6-lb chicken, not a 3-lb chicken.
