Dear SOS: I know it’s a reach, but the vertical roasted chicken salad served at Le Dome in West Hollywood is fantastic. Would the restaurant be kind enough to share the recipe?
Dear Patti: Le Dome came through, as it always does. The dressing will blow you away. It contains only three ingredients. By the way, Chef Jean Claude Bourlier of Le Dome cooks the chickens vertically on a stand (usually sold at restaurant supply stores). “We’ve been cooking chicken this way for 18 years,” Bourlier said.
But you can also roast the chicken in a baking pan. Substitute boned chicken breasts (with skin on) in place of a whole chicken, if you wish.
