As much attention as oxtail poutine and bacon-wrapped bacon get, great chicken is one of L.A.’s not-so-secret weapons. From A La Brasa to Zankou, we all have our favorite roasted birds in a city where a French master also has a fried chicken truck and our prized Jidori birds captured a feature in the New York Times. We recently checked in with a few great local chefs to see what the cluck they’re doing with roasted chicken these days and where else they go to find their favorite chicken dishes. From Waterloo & City’s smoking funeral march for a sous vide whole bird to Napa Valley Grille’s bread pudding, enjoy our slide show of some of the most creative roast chicken dishes around.
