My favorite dish from Modernist Cuisine at Home is Roast Chicken. Like many people, I grew up eating roast chicken a lot, but having Modernist Cuisine at Home‘s roast chicken is like eating it for the first time. It’s injection-brined and then brushed with soy sauce, which might not be traditional, but these steps act as drying and browning agents for the skin. The result is a chicken that is perfectly moist on the inside and crispy on the outside.
Check back tomorrow: every day this week, we’ll bring you another of our chefs’ favorite recipes from Modernist Cuisine at Home. Visit our blog for more photos, stories, and tips.
