Italian.Chef's picture
  Frying chicken 4 Pound (1 Chicken, 3 1/2 To 4 Pound)
  Orange 8 Ounce (1 Large Sized)
  Pimentos/Red bell peppers 12 Ounce, seeded and cut into thin strips (2 Large Fresh)
  Whipping cream 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Crushed dried hot red chiles 1 Teaspoon
  Fresh fettuccine/Fresh tagliarini 10 Ounce (1 Package)
  Fresh cilantro 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Coriander Leaves)

Remove chicken neck and giblets; reserve for other uses, if desired.
Remove and discard lumps of fat from chicken cavity.
Rinse chicken inside and out; pat dry.
Place chicken, breast up, in a shallow roasting pan.
Roast, uncovered, in a 400° oven until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest part of thigh (not touching bone) registers 185°F or until meat near thighbone is no longer pink; cut to test (about 1 hour).
Drain juices from chicken into roasting pan; set chicken aside.
Scrape drippings, including browned bits, from pan and reserve.
When chicken is cool enough to handle, pull off skin in large pieces; place, fat side down, on a rack in roasting pan.
Return to 400° oven and bake, uncovered, until very crisp (15 to 20 minutes).
Meanwhile, remove and discard chicken bones; tear meat into bite-size pieces and set aside.
With a zester, remove peel (colored part only) from orange.
(Or use a vegetable peeler, then cut peel into fine strands with a knife.) Reserve orange for other uses.
Combine pan drippings and pimentos in a wide frying pan; cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until pimentos are slightly softened (3 to 5 minutes).
Add cream, chiles, and half the orange peel.
Increase heat to high and boil until reduced by half (about 5 minutes).
Add chicken meat and cook just until hot; season to taste with salt and pepper.
