All week long David Lebovitz -- professional cook, baker, and blogger -- will be sharing recipes from his new book, My Paris Kitchen. Follow along to win one of six copies we're giving away -- and find out why Paris really is always a good idea.

Today: David shares a chicken recipe fit for entertaining -- but too good to share.

One thing I learned pretty quickly about the differences between French and American recipes is that in America, one chicken yields two servings, whereas in France, it yields four and sometimes six. However, in this case, one chicken yields one serving -- mine. 

If you have an outdoor grill, by all means use it, weighing down the chicken with a brick until the skin side is nice and crispy, and then flipping it over.

Chicken Lady Chicken (or Poulet Crapaudine Façon)

1 1/2 teaspoona sea salt or kosher salt
