A Surprising Way to the Holy Grail of Chicken
Maple syrup is the secret weapon for getting crispy-skinned roast chicken in this recipe from Gena Knox's Southern My Way: Food & Family cookbook. You mix the sweetener with chopped pecans and some apple cider vinegar, and brush it onto the chicken for the last 25 minutes of cooking; the sugars help the meat develop a beautiful, crunchy exterior.
