I made Marcella's roast chicken with lemon for the 4th or 5th time this weekend. I noticed that one of the other times I made it, there were organ-y bits in the juices that seemed to run out from inside the cavity, despite rinsing.
This time, when I rinsed, I inspected more closely and was able to dislodge soft pink-brown pieces lodged under other tissue in the cavity. What is it and why is it in there?
I have never read about removing anything (beside the bage of giblets) before. Does anyone else find this mystery part? These weren't the highest quality birds - could that be the problem?
