Once again, I have to say how much we're loving our CSA this summer.
The star this past week was a beautiful chicken. Following the directions in How to Grill, Sweet Husband spatchcocked (butterflied) the bird, and I slathered it in fresh pesto from our garden. It took about a half an hour on the grill, and we roasted some little potatoes right along side it. With s'mores for dessert, it was another legendary dinner at the Hacienda.
I am not ordinarily a huge fan of chicken because of the dryness, so, of course, I had to ask what was so special about this bird. Our Nice Farmer said it was just a Cornish Cross, but that she feeds them extra milk, which makes them better.
Note to self: Add milk cow to imaginary farm--not for the family, but for our future meat chickens.
