In this video cooking lesson, Chef Sydney walks you through how to make a savory and delicious whole roasted chicken using a Dutch oven.
TOOLS YOU'LL NEED
- Heavy over-safe roasting pan or Dutch oven
- Cooking string
- 1 whole chicken (about 5 lb)
- 1/4 cup of salt
- 1/3 cup of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of smoked paprika
- 1 tablespoon of mustard
- 1 teaspoon of thyme
- First prepare the rub mixture. In a bowl combine all ingredients (salt, olive oil, smoked paprika, mustard, thyme)
- With a spoon put some rub between the skin and the meat and rub the rest of the mix all over the chicken
- Tie the legs of the chicken with cooking string to make sure it cooks evenly - this step is referred to as Trussing the chicken. Trussing is beneficial and helps prevent the chicken from drying out.
- Place the chicken in a Dutch oven and in then in the pre-heated oven. Cook for about 2.5 hours at 295 F.
