  • 1 (3- or 4-pound) chicken
  • 3/4 cup kosher salt
  • 2 lemons
  • 3 shallots
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup creme fraiche
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Rinse and pat the chicken very dry. Salt the chicken well and place it in the refrigerator to chill overnight.

Preheat the oven to 450 F. Rinse the chicken again and pat dry. Place in the oval baker and stuff with a quartered lemon and a quartered shallot. Truss the chicken so that it cooks evenly throughout.

Quarter the remaining shallots and lemons and arrange them around the chicken. Roast in the oven for 40 to 50 minutes, until the bird is golden brown, and the skin is crispy.

Remove everything from the oval baker onto a cutting board and allow to rest while you prepare the mustard sauce.
