Roasted “Streetcorner” pasture chicken! yum!

October 12th, 2010

Apparently, I’ve been making people (a.k.a. my mom!) nervous with receiving a box of POM (which some people read to be a different word…do you see it?) and meeting a guy on the corner for bacon… well, I have another one to add to the list… meeting a guy on the corner for some chicken!  I’m glad I did!  It was some delicious chicken.

Through the Tasting Table, I discovered Paulie’s Pasture- a poultry farm.  I started following him on twitter out of interest but did not think much of it.  Until he tweeted me, asking if I wanted some chicken… he would deliver it!  Sure!  I like chicken and I’ve been having a hankering to roast one lately.

He met me on Michigan with a nice little chicken (4 or 5 pounds?) and a dozen eggs.  A really nice man who is very passionate about selling high quality chicken, who are allowed to act like chickens.

When it came to roasting, I wanted something simple that would not overwhelm the flavor of the chicken.  Normally, I like the Barefoot Contessa chicken with lots and lots of butter under the skin but… that seemed unnecessary with fresh, pasture-fed chicken.  I decided upon Thomas Keller’s Favorite Roast Chicken.  It is very simple with salt and pepper.  I did stuff it with my mom’s stuffing but I could have done without it.  The chicken was great.  It was moist and delicious!  I ate a lot and still had so much left over (which I used too!  You’ll have to wait!).  Next time I want to roast a chicken, I know who to call!

P.S. Please enter my giveaway!

    Ginny . . . . sorry so slow with a response, I’ve just been swamped.

    Very kind words from someone that really know their way around the kitchen.

    Please let me know when you’d like more pastured poultry, I’d be happy to provide.

    I’d like to see you get a stewer for the most outrageous rich stock ever.

    Thanks again for such high praise.
