A question about a recipe: Spatchcocked Roast Chicken

4855141657_70471d1080_b

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.

The 'fridge is dry low humidity environment and helps remove moisture from the skin, so do the chill in the 'fridge uncovered.
