One of the best recipes for roast chicken out there has to be Judy Rodgers' recipe for Zuni Cafe Roast Chicken served on an equally delicious bread salad. No surprise, it is my number one method for cooking any kind of poultry, not just chicken. The succulent moistness that this method gives to the chicken, or indeed, any other poultry, is unmatched.
However, I do have meddling Indian genes, so I also had to make my own version of this Zuni-style chicken using my tandoori spice mix and my mother's incredible masala bread salad. It's a simple, spicy twist on the original, and it is absolutely stunning.
