Guy’s Chicken with Olives and Turmeric
Pollo al mattone, chicken cooked under bricks, is said to have originated in Impruneta, the town near Florence famous all over the world for its beautifully made terra cotta tiles. According to tradition, this dish was made for the feast of San Luca, the town’s patron.
The method of grilling the chicken with a weight on it allows the bird to keep contact with the grill and cook evenly. At one time heavy terra cotta pots were used to weigh the chicken down. Even if you do not have a stovetop grill you can achieve the same results on a really hot outdoor grill, about 500 F.
