Step by step instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 190ºC
  • With the help of a needle, inject the chicken everywhere with cognac. There will be cognac left over.
  • Season with garlic salt, thyme, oregano and pepper, do not forget the inside of the chicken.
  • Spread pork lard over the surface of the chicken, which will give it flavour and the necessary fat.
  • Shower with the rest of the cognac.
  • Add a little branch of rosemary to perfume and roast in the oven for approximately an hour and fifteen minutes.
  • After 40 minutes, add the dried fruits: prunes, dates and dried apricots (you can put some inside the chicken as well)
  • Cover with aluminum foil to keep the chicken and the fruits from burning.
  • After roasting for another 20 minutes, take off the aluminum foil and continue for another 15 or 20 minutes until the skin has browned.
  • If necessary, turn the grill on but, in this case, you have to take the fruits out to keep them from burning.
  • Once you take it out of the oven, take the chicken out and, over the stove burner, add a shot of glass of white wine to deglaze the pan.
  • Pour the juices into a pan and let it boil down to blend the sauce.
  • Present the chicken on a platter with the fruits and the sauce in a sauce boat.
