   Spice-Rubbed Roast Chicken

                         Spice-Rubbed Roast Chicken with Two Sauces Recipe

At his new chicken-focused restaurant in Atlanta, Bantam + Biddy, Shaun Doty uses an Old Hickory rotisserie to cook his birds, which are coated with a lemony fennel-seed rub. The choice of sauces to serve alongside includes smoky piri piri and Dominican wasakaka, made with onion, chiles and herbs.

Yield: 2 to 4
Total: 

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest, finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ground fennel seeds
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground pepper
  • (3 1/2 pounds) chicken, chilled
  • Kosher salt
  • Wasakaka Sauce and Piri Piri Sauce, for serving

Preparation

  1. In a bowl, whisk the oil, garlic, lemon zest and juice, rosemary, fennel seeds and pepper. Rub the mixture all over the chicken, inside and out. Let come to room temperature.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°. Twist the wings of the chicken behind the back and tie the legs together; set breast side up in a roasting pan. Season all over with salt. Roast for about 55 minutes, until the juices run clear when an inner thigh is pierced. Transfer to a carving board and let rest for 10 minutes. Cut the chicken into 8 pieces and serve with the Wasakaka and Piri Piri Sauces.
