Roast chicken with almonds suggestions

Removing the backbone and flattening the chicken into a spatchcock shape is a great way to ensure consistent cooking. To ensure consistent browning and crispiness, the skin should be as exposed to the oven as possible. If you don’t want to prepare a full chicken, you may use chicken breasts or thighs instead. Before cooking, rub the skin with salt and pepper and let it rest, uncovered, in the fridge overnight. This will make the skin crispier.

Soon it will be time for Sunday lunch, and there’s nothing more satisfying than a plate of perfectly roasted chicken with almonds, over a mound of golden potatoes. Feel free to try this recipe out.
