If possible, plan in advance for this easy chicken recipe; letting it chill for 2 days after being seasoned has a huge impact on the flavor and also gives the skin time to dehydrate, which magnifies its crispy potential.


  • 2 tablespoons granular rice koji
  • 1 tablespoon Diamond Crystal or 2 teaspoons Morton kosher salt
  • 1 3½–4-pound chicken, patted dry
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Recipe Preparation

  • Grind koji in a spice mill or a blender to a fine powder. Transfer to a small bowl and mix in salt; set aside.

  • Starting at the neck end of the chicken, gently slide your fingers between the skin and breast to loosen skin; continue working down the thighs and legs to fully separate skin from meat (be careful not to tear). Rub koji mixture under skin all over meat and inside cavity, distributing evenly. Season outside of chicken generously with pepper and place on a wire rack set inside a rimmed baking sheet. Chill at least 8 hours and up to 2 days, leaving uncovered up to 24 hours, then loosely covering if chilling longer.

  • Let chicken sit at room temperature 45 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 425°. Roast chicken until skin is starting to brown all over, 15–20 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350° and continue roasting chicken until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a thigh registers 165°, 40–45 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 15 minutes before carving.

Our chicken definitely needed longer in the oven compared to the stated times in the recipe, but the chicken itself was wonderfully moist (even the breast meat, which nearly everyone in our household leaves as the last choice normally), and nice yet lightly seasoned from the koji. We had it with buttered asparagus and a potato salad, and there's plenty leftover that we will probably have in a ramen bowl or similar.
