How to Truss a Chicken in One Minute, No Needle Required

I have recently been spending a lot of my time perfecting my roast chicken.  Whether it’s preparation for married life, or just feeling insecure that as a cook my roast chicken wasn’t up to snuff, I felt that I needed to remedy the situation.

One thing I realized, a bit reluctantly, is that you really do need to truss the bird for the perfect roast chicken.  Why?  Tying the chicken into a compact package means that the breast stays juicy and the legs don’t burn.  It makes all the difference.

But it’s not very me to get out a long trussing needle and tie the bird up.  So, here is how to simply use a piece of twine and one minute to create the perfect chicken bundle.

    I love your video and you’ve expertly shown how to truss. But… I REALLY love that French tune that is playing during the video. What is it? Do you know the title or singer? I’d love to know. Thanks!
