I really wanted to have Zuni Chicken on Christmas (I've made it before and love it. It's a great special-occasion chicken, and since there will only be three of us partaking, there's no need for a goose/turkey/ham/whatever).
Here's the issue: my mom said she'd pick up the chicken, but she bought a kosher bird! Can I still do it? Has anyone tried it?
I know you're not supposed to brine a kosher bird, so is the "dry-brining" S&P 2 days in advance out as well? Could I just put the pepper on, or would that not have the desired effect? Should I just give up and make the Hazan chicken (if I do that, do you think I could still do the bread salad, or do I really need to redo the whole menu??)
Thanks for any advice!
