It’s got zing, it’s got flavour and it’s moister than any chicken would ever have the right to be. Well, you’d be too if you spent 24 hours soaking in citrus! It’s the citrus juice that does a real number on the meat – we’re talking weak in the knees, soft in the thigh, plump in the breast – the chicken doesn’t have a chance. I have, in fact, left this to marinate for, wait for it … 48 hours.
It’s like time spent in rehab (not that I know anything about that) but, I imagine you’d come out a kinder, gentler, softer more pliable version of your former self – the demons are gone! So try this chicken, use the citrus of your choosing and see for yourself how the humble chicken – after acid rehab – becomes resigned roasted royalty (I just love alliteration!) So do yourself a big favour and roast a chicken or 2, at least weekly – it’ll turn into more meals than you can come up with! Salads, pastas, soups, sandwiches, tacos, rice dishes – roasted chicken gets along with everything – kinda like Switzerland!
