Flat Roasted Chicken with Prosciutto and Green Olives
Makes 4 servings
This chicken dish will have wonderful smells coming from your
oven—especially welcoming on a chilly night. Serve it over sturdy greens to
make a warm salad along with Basic Cauliflower Mash to which you have added
1 whole chicken, 3 1⁄ 2to 4 lbs. (1589 g to 1816 g)
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1⁄ 4lb. (113 g) prosciutto, in one piece, diced into 1⁄ 2-inch (1.2 cm)
1⁄ 3cup(80 mL) shallots, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1⁄ 2cup (120 mL ) whole, unpitted green olives
1⁄ 2cup (120 mL ) white wine
Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
With a sharp heavy knife, split the chicken down the backbone and open it up.
Turn it breast side up and flatten with the palm of your hand. Cut a slit in
the skin at the bottom of the breast and slip the “ankles” of the chicken
through the slit. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Transfer the
chicken, breast side down, to a lightly oiled roasting pan. Bake for 45
minutes. While the chicken is baking, prepare and combine the prosciutto,
shallots, garlic, and olives.
Remove the chicken from the oven and transfer to a plate. Remove any
accumulated fat from the roasting pan. Scatter the prosciutto mixture evenly
in the roasting pan and add the white wine. Place the chicken skin side up
into the pan. Bake for 45 minutes longer.
Remove the chicken from the pan. Either carve the chicken or cut into serving
pieces. Pour the prosciutto mixture over the chicken and serve.
