Notes

Garlic mayonnaise accompanies so many regional dishes—the truth is that it tastes great with just about anything, from meat, fish, and poultry to vegetables. I like it here as a complement to marinated chicken (and of course, rabbit would be excellent as well).

Ingredients

  • A 3–3½-pound chicken, split in half
  • ¾ cup dry white wine
  • ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 bay leaves, crumbled
  • 4½ teaspoons thyme leaves or ¾ teaspoon dried
  • 3 cloves garlic, mashed to a paste
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin, preferably freshly ground in a mortar or spice mill
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Garlic Mayonnaise

Directions

Gently pound the chicken to flatten it. Mix together the marinade ingredients in a shallow bowl. Add the chicken to the marinade and turn to coat well. Marinate, skin side down, 2 hours, basting occasionally.

Remove the chicken from the marinade and place skin side down on a broiler tray. Broil about 7 minutes to each side to brown the chicken, basting occasionally with the marinade. Transfer to a 400°F oven and continue cooking and basting skin side up about 15 minutes more. Serve with the Garlic Mayonnaise on the side.
