Quick Chicken Brine

Combine all ingredients and bring to boil over high heat in a large stockpot. Remove from the heat and let flavors infuse for 20-30 minutes. Add ice to brine and stir until the ice is dissolved. Pour brine over chicken and let marinate for 3 hours under refrigeration. Pull chicken from brine and completely pat dry. Let the bird sit at room temperature for an hour before roasting, or refrigerate until needed.

Roasted Chicken

Pre-heat your oven to 425°F. Truss the bird so that it roasts uniformly and sprinkle with salt and pepper, inside and outside of the bird. Place the chicken on a rack in the roasting pan and roast for 60-75 minutes until the outside is golden brown and crisp, adding the lemons to the pan for the last 20 minutes. The temperature inside should read 165°F. Let the chicken rest for 15-30 minutes to let juices redistribute before carving.

Chimichurri Sauce 

Pulse the herbs in a food processor until finely chopped. You might need to scrape the sides of the bowl. Transfer herbs to a medium-sized mixing bowl. Whisk in all other ingredients. Reserve until needed.


Place roasted chicken beside chimichurri sauce and lemon halves. Sprinkle with Maldon salt.
