Ingredients

Salsa Verde:

Directions

Special equipment:
4 bricks covered in aluminum foil
  1. Remove the backbone of the chicken. Split the breast plate and press down on the chicken in all joints to flatten it.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the rosemary, white pepper, paprika, salt, garlic, oregano, and basil. Rub the mixture under the skin of the chicken and the inside cavity.
  3. Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat with oil, and place chicken skin side down. Place another large saute pan on top of the chicken, and place 4 bricks inside of the top pan.
  4. Cook on medium-high heat, for 7 to 10 minutes on both sides, or until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer.
  5. Remove chicken to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with Salsa Verde.

Salsa Verde:

  1. In a food processor, puree all ingredients but oil and salt until smooth. With machine running, slowly add oil until well combined. Season with salt, to taste.
