endless things you can do to a chicken to season it before roasting, but
the simpler, the better. You can simply salt and pepper the chicken and
pop it in the oven, but the skin will be tastier if you add a touch more
flavoring. The recipe below relies on aromatic toasted sesame oil, which
gives the skin a delectable flavor. The soy sauce helps the skin achieve
that yummy-looking mahogany color and replaces the salt.
To make this
chicken really fast, roast a smallish chicken, about 3 pounds, and
follow the high heat roasting technique described.
