  • Summary

    This chicken is flavored by citrus, soy sauce, ponzu (a tangy Japanese sauce), garlic, and scallions -- all popular Asian ingredients. After the backbone is removed, the chicken marinates and is cooked flat under a brick to yield moist meat and crisp skin.

    Ingredients

    • 2 oranges
    • 1 lime
    • 2 scallions, crushed with the flat side of a large knife
    • 3 garlic cloves, crushed with the flat side of a large knife
    • 1/4 cup soy sauce
    • 1/4 cup ponzu or rice-wine vinegar
    • 1/4 cup mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine) or honey
    • 1 whole chicken (3 to 4 pounds), rinsed and patted dry
