I was going to try this next weekend. Just a general recipe that I read somewhere but can't find anymore. For anyone who has tried it, is this the general idea?
Marinate a whole fryer (backbone removed) with olive oil, lemon, parsley and garlic for 1 hour. Season the bird with salt and pepper, place skin side down in a cast iron skillet over medium high heat with aluminum foil covered bricks on top, cook for 10 minutes. Transfer to oven set at 400 degrees and roast for 15 to 20 more minutes.
Does this sound about right? If you have a specific recipe I would appreciate hearing it. Thanks.
