Chicken alla Diavola
- 1 tablespoons dried oregano
- ½ cup white wine vinegar
- ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
- Two 3 pound chickens
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 teaspoons dried sage
- ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
- ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Combine the dried oregano and white wine vinegar in a small jar. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 2 days. Strain the oregano infuse vinegar into a small bowl and mix with the olive oil.
- Remove the wing tips and backbones from the chickens using the kitchen shears. Set the chickens on a large rimmed baking sheet, skin side up, and press down firmly on the breastbones to flatten so that the legs face the breasts. Score each breast, thigh, drumstick, and wing halfway to the bone in two places. Drizzle all but 2 tablespoons of the vinegar-oil mixture over both sides of the chickens and rub the mixture into the meat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
- Combine the sage, salt, red pepper, rosemary, and pepper in a small bowl. Rub the seasoning all over the chickens. Let the seasoned chickens stand at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Roast the chickens in the upper third of the oven, skin side up, basting both chickens with the rest of the vinegar-oil mixture half way through until the chicken is just cooked, about 45 minutes.
- Preheat your broiler. Pour the pan juices into a small saucepan. Broil the chickens about 4 inches from the heat, rotating the pan until browned and crisp, about 3 minutes. Carve the chickens. Reheat the pan juices and serve with the chickens.
