I have a question about the recipe "Spatchcocked Roast Chicken" from merrill. The directions call for refrigerating the bird before roasting to achieve a crisp skin, why does this work? A recipe for baked chicken wings I favor also calls for the refrigeration period, I can attest to it working as promised, but I am baffled as to why.
