After attempting a two-hour “sous-vide-in–the-oven” method I had read up on with a spice-rubbed chicken roast, all I was left with was a raw roast and guests ringing the doorbell for dinner! I quickly dumped the roast into a pot and braised it for a short time — and viola! Amazingly, a tender and moist chicken roast was achieved.

Ingredients

Chicken Roast

  • 3-pound (about 1-and-1/2-kilogram) white or dark chicken roast in net

  • 2 tablespoons Gefen Olive Oil

  • 2 tablespoons basic spice blend (enough to coat roast; recipe follows)

  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary (optional)

  • 1/2 cup water

Basic Chicken Spice Blend

  • 2 teaspoons dried mustard powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

Prepare the Basic Chicken Spice Blend

1.

Combine all spice blend ingredients in a small mixing bowl.

2.

Transfer to a container and store with your spices.

Prepare the Roast

1.

Drizzle olive oil over roast and rub into chicken. Sprinkle with spice blend and rub all over to coat. Sprinkle with rosemary, if using.

2.

Heat a little bit of oil in a medium-sized pot and sear chicken, turning to brown it on all sides. Add water and bring to a boil. Lower flame so the water is simmering and cover pot. Cook for 50 minutes for a white roast and one and a half hours for a dark roast, turning occasionally and adding a bit of water if it cooks out.

3.

When finished cooking, remove roast from pot and cool, reserving liquid. Remove net and slice into 1/2-inch (one centimeter) thick slices. Drizzle with reserved cooking liquid before serving.

Tips:

This basic spice rub can be used on chicken pieces just as well. You can also try adding additional spices and herbs to suit your liking, such as chili powder, oregano, thyme, etc.

Notes:

I used a white chicken roast and it came out truly moist and tender. Plus, it needs much less cooking time.

Hi Dov,
You should see a print button on the left-hand side of your desktop screen. Do you see that option?

Can this be made in advance, frozen and rewarmed?
