  • Summary

    Food critics often say that the measure of a great restaurant is its roast chicken. This technique is much more forgiving than regular oven-roasting chicken, although it doesn't have a crunchy crust. I believe that achieving moist white meat is even more important than the crust.

    Ingredients

    • 1 chicken, about 3 1/2 pounds
    • 5 fresh thyme sprigs
    • 4 garlic cloves, unpeeled
    • 2 fresh bay leaves
    • 9 pounds kosher salt (three 3-pound boxes)
    • Salsa Lucía
