Trussing a chicken is simply tying it up snugly with kitchen string in preparation for roasting it or cooking it on the rotisserie.
- It helps ensure that the chicken cooks evenly because it is more compact.
- It prevents the breast meat from drying out while the thighs and legs are still cooking.
- It browns evenly which results in it looking more attractive and tasting delicious.
- It ensures you cook a flavourful, juicy chicken with crispy skin.
