Torihamu, literally means Chicken Ham in Japanese. When you cure chickens, then roast them, they are like little chicken hams. That is what I am shooting for here, I will be slicing and serving cold on rolls tomorrow.
I tie them like that, one breast turned 180 degrees from the other, it gives me a uniform mass to cook, which means I get more evenly cooked chicken and the thin tapered end of the breast doesn't dry out or get hard. These will slice very evenly, and yield 100% of the meat for slices.
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
