BOW HILL BLUEBERRY ROASTED CHICKEN
Yield: 1 whole chicken
Active prep: 5 minutes
Roast: 40-50 minutes
1 organic, locally grown chicken fryer, approximately 4 pounds
1 ½ cups Bow Hill Blueberry Marinade & Salad Dressing
1 tbsp salt
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Remove the chicken from the refrigerator one hour prior to roasting. Rub the skin and cavity with salt. Truss the chicken, place in a bowl and pour 1 cup of the marinade over the bird. Let rest at room temperature for an hour.
Place a rack on a foil-lined pan for roasting. To reduce smoke from the drippings and sugars, spread kosher salt over the foil, ¼” thick, under the rack.
Place the chicken breast side down on the roasting rack. Reserve the marinade. Roast 15 minutes. Turn the bird breast side up, baste and tent loosely with foil. Check the internal temperature of the chicken at 30 minutes and remove the foil. Check the temperature again at 40 to 50 minutes. The chicken will be done when the temperature reads 160°F (it will rise another 5 degrees when resting), the meat is firm to the touch, and the juices run clear.
Remove from the oven and let rest for 15 to 20 minutes. Drizzle ½ cup of marinade over the carved pieces prior to serving.
Mix beef, pork, salt, dried blueberries and redux together. Shape into patties. The pork provides extra fat for grass-fed beef.
When grilling, ensure that the patty temperature moves beyond 137° F (medium-rare). Otherwise, 2 pounds of beef can be used and cooked rare.
Assemble and enjoy!
