Ingredients

CHESTNUT STUFFING

Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Cut backs, collarbones and wing tips from chickens and reserve.

In a bowl combine oil, garlic, marjoram, and lemon zest. Place chicken in marinade and marinate for up to 12 hours.

In a hot skillet Chef heats oil and places chicken skin side down. Wrap a brick or weight in foil and place on top of each piece of chicken. Reduce heat and brown chicken slowly. When skin is evenly browned, turn chicken over, pour off fat, and replace brick on top of chicken. Place skillet in oven for about 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
