Roasted Garlic Poussin

Makes 2 Light Servings
wine WINE PAIRING
Chardonnay

This dish really showcases poussin’s juicy, tender meat by leaving it mostly unadorned. Just garlic, salt and a bit of parmesan. Incredibly simple, but a photo shoot favorite.

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

1

Optional (but recommended): Brine the poussin overnight using the brine recipe at How to Brine Meat & Poultry, minus the honey.
2

Preheat your oven to 475 degrees.
3

Split the poussin down the middle into two halves.
4

Gently pull up the skin and insert some of the mashed garlic. Rub the remainder of the garlic on the outside (skin side and meat side). Season both sides with salt & pepper.
5

Lay the halves into a hot oiled cast-iron skillet, skin-side down and sear until the skin has a nice golden hue. Move the skillet to the oven and roast the poussin until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
6

Remove the poussin from the oven. Flip the pieces and let them rest in the still-hot pan.
7

Serve with sides of your choice, topped with extra virgin olive oil and parmesan cheese.
