1 whole chicken, about 1.75 kg (3½ lb), cut into 8 serving pieces (see Basics)

¾ teaspoon salt

105 g apple jelly

4 granny smith or golden delicious apples, cut horizontally into 4 thick slices each

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together honey, mustard, 2 tablespoons of the vinegar and the pepper. With your fingers, gently loosen skin from chicken pieces without removing it, then rub the salt over and under skin. Rub mustard mixture under chicken skin.
