During their first interview, Prince Harry revealed on what terms he had proposed to Meghan Markle: he knelt down while the two were at home, at his villa, preparing dinner. On the menu: a roast chicken (romantic, right?) Whose special recipe was just discovered. It comes from chef Ina Garten, who especially directs the show Barefoot Contessa on the Food Network and whose Meghan, herself a cordon-bought, is a fan.
“There is nothing more delicious (or impressive) than a perfectly cooked chicken. If you have a grilled chicken recipe at the Ina Garten level, this is a game changer. I bring it to dinners and make a lot of friends “, the actress had explained in the pages of Good Housekeeping. She even managed to seduce an English prince… ” Congratulations Prince Harry and Meghan! I always knew that roasted chicken had magical powers !! I’m so happy for you both! »wrote Ina Garten on Twitter, not a little proud of her.
The recipe for the perfect roast chicken
Here is Ina Garten’s recipe (can be found on her website):
1 roasted chicken; kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 large bunch of fresh thyme
1 lemon halved
1 head of garlic, halved in width
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 Spanish onion, cut into slices
1 cup chicken broth, preferably homemade
2 tablespoons flour
Once you have removed the needles, rinse them in and out and then remove the excess fat. Salt and pepper generously the inside of the chicken before filling it with the bouquet of thyme, two halves of lemon and garlic. Coat the outside of the chicken with butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper, then sprinkle the chicken with onion slices. Cook for 1:30 until the liquid comes out clean. Remove the pan and cover with aluminum foil while preparing the sauce. Remove the fat and reserve 2 tablespoons in a small cup. Add the chicken broth to the pan and cook over high heat for about 5 minutes, until reduced. Mix 2 tablespoons of chicken fat with the flour and simmer for a few minutes. Drain the sauce into a small saucepan and set to taste. Keep warm and serve with chicken.
