Quick Notes

  • I like to use Organic Grass-fed Chickens, I buy them from my local stores or ButcherBox (not sponsored, but you can get $30 off your 1st box!).
  • You can totally use any of your favorite poultry spice (let me know what is your favorite spice, I would love to try it!), I usually measure 1 tablespoon per pound.
  • I would highly recommend using oils that can be cooked in high temperatures like avocado oil or grape seed oil.
