Eating Poulet Rotî in Paris

One of the most addictive dishes in Paris, in addition to pastries and pain des amis, is poulet rotî or roast chicken. It's sold at the butchers, in restaurants and at the market. One of the best poulet rotî vendors is The Chicken Lady at the Marché Bastille. They set up shop every Sunday and sell spatchcocked birds that have been marinated in a variety of ingredients from ginger and honey to lemon and sesame. The skin is sticky and sweet and the meat falls off the bone. Grab one for a quick lunch, or if you're renting an apartment, take it back for an easy dinner and I dare you not to eat it in a single sitting.
