Hye Herb Salt
3 - 4 lb whole chicken
Few sprigs of favorite herb(s)
For the Brine:
1/2 liter water
1/3 cup salt
4 tablespoons brown sugar
4 cloves smashed garlic
2 cups of ice to cool
Add all brine ingredients except for ice into a 4 qt sauce pan and heat only until salt dissolves.
Add ice to chill and place bird in brine for 2-3 hrs at room temp or 6 hrs in the fridge.
Preheat oven to 450 °F (232.22 °C)
Remove bird from brine and pat dry.
Spatchcock the chicken (instructions on video, available at williamchriswines.com/blog).
Liberally season the bird on all sides with Hye Herb Salt.
Place bird in large cast iron, skin side up, on top of favorite sprigs of herbs (we used thyme and rosemary).
Roast the bird for 40 minutes until the skin is golden brown or until instant read thermometer reads 165 °F in the thickest part of the thigh.
Remove and let the bird rest for 5 min before serving.
