Citrus-Spiced Split Chicken Kit for 2

$99

Flavor-packed, brined chicken gets loaded with a bright, citrusy spice blend, then pan seared and roasted to crispy perfection. Served alongside Girl & the Goat’s “Magic” Green Beans, an iconic dish that has been featuring on Chef Stephanie Izard’s menu at Girl & the Goat since the beginning. Each kit includes 2 products from Chef Izard’s “This Little Goat” line of globally inspired sauces, spices and everything crunches – 1 bottle of This Little Goat went to Belize spice & 1 bottle of This Little Goat went to Southeast Asia sauce.

Since it first opened its doors in the Windy City’s Fulton Market District in 2010, few Chicago restaurants have been so consistently praised—and packed—as Stephanie Izard’s Girl & The Goat. James Beard Award-winning chef Izard’s bold, globetrotting flavors defy easy categorization, but every item on her family-style menu is wildly creative and insanely delicious. Izard is renowned as one of America’s best chefs: she won Season 1 of “Iron Chef Gauntlet” and Season 4 of "Top Chef.” and took home the James Beard Award for Best Chef Great Lakes in 2013. One of the best restaurants in Chicago, Girl & The Goat was a 2011 James Beard Award "Best New Restaurant” finalist.

To Serve

  • Brined half chicken
  • This Little Goat went to Belize spice
  • Kosher salt (not provided)
  • Cooking oil (such as canola or vegetable oil, not provided)
  • Mint
  • Lemon
  • Kewpie Mayonnaise
  • This Little Goat went to Southeast Asia sauce
  • Green beans
  • Shallots
  • Roasted, salted cashews

Make the Citrus-Spiced Roasted Chicken

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Remove chicken from the brine and pat dry with paper towels or a clean kitchen towel.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together 2 Tbsp each canola oil and This Little Goat went to Belize spice blend and ½ teaspoon kosher salt.
  • Rub the marinade all over the chicken until well coated on all sides.
  • Heat a large oven-safe skillet (or 2 smaller skillets if one is not large enough) over medium-high heat. Coat with a splash of cooking oil and once hot, place the chicken in the pan, skin side down (you should hear it sizzle).
  • Sear on the stove until golden brown on the bottom side, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Transfer to the oven (or place on a baking sheet if your pan is not oven safe), SKIN SIDE STILL DOWN and roast for about 25 minutes.
  • After 25 minutes, flip the chicken and continue cooking for about 10 minutes more, until cooked through. Note: every oven is different so cooking times may vary, but 30-35 minutes should cook the chicken through so it’s moist and tasty! Your chicken is done when the juices run clear when pierced with a fork.
  • Remove chicken from the oven and garnish with fresh mint leaves. Let rest for at least 5 minutes before serving alongside Girl and the Goat Green Beans (recipe to follow) and fresh lemon wedges.

Make the Girl and the Goat Green Beans

  • Make the drizzle sauce:
    • Whisking together ⅓ cup of the Kewpie mayo with about 3 tablespoons This Little Goat Went to Southeast Asia sauce until combined.
    • Spoon the mixture into a small zip-top bag (this will act as a disposable squeeze bottle once you snip off the bottom corner).
  • Prep/blanch the green beans and shallots:
    • Clean your green beans by breaking off any stems or damaged ends.
    • Bring a pot of heavily-salted water to a rolling boil. Fill a large bowl with ice water.
    • Carefully place the green beans in the boiling water and cook until bright green and just tender, about 2 minutes.
    • Strain and immediately plunge into an ice water bath for 1 minute (don’t let them sit too long or they will get waterlogged). Drain and pat to dry.
    • Thinly slice the shallot into rounds.
  • Cook the green beans:
    • Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat and coat with a drizzle of cooking oil.
    • Add the green beans to the pan and season with a pinch of kosher salt.
    • Sauté the green beans for about 3-4 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally, as they begin to show a golden-brown blister.
    • Once your green beans are beginning to brown, stir in the sliced shallots.
    • Add in about 2 tablespoons of the Southeast Asia sauce, tossing to combine. Continue sautéing until well coated and warmed through, about 2-3 minutes more.
    • Add in your cashews (breaking into smaller chunks, if desired) and toss them around in the pan until well coated in sauce.
  • Assemble and serve:
    • Transfer green beans to a large serving bowl.
    • Grab your bag of Southeast Asia drizzle sauce, cut off one bottom corner and drizzle sauce all over the green beans.
    • Serve warm and enjoy!

It was perfect! Arrived on time, easy to follow instructions and the freshest ingredients. The meal was a birthday surprise for my husband because we couldn’t get reservations at The Girl in the Goat when we visited Chicago a few years ago. And it was DELICIOUS!! I’m thinking of ordering the short rib meal for Fathers Day.

We had a mix of seniors and youngsters and everyone said the Girl and the Goat pork shank was one of the best meals we've ever had. The pork fell off the bone, the sauces were delicious and the beans - the best. It was truly a wonderful experience.

So fun! Stephanie Izard was great! I felt like I was sharing the kitchen with a friend without having to share the space. The food came out delicious! She was easy to cook along with. Stephanie gave easy to do directions while also talking about the ingredients and telling us some stories along the way. Would definitely do again!

I just LOVED cooking with Stephanie Izard. The food was out of this world, easy to make and follow along with, too. Plus, it was great to hear Stephanie's cooking stories and travels around the world. I would definitely do another cook with her or any of the other amazing chefs on Goldbelly!

All of the amazing sauces, the pre-made empanada dough and scallion pancake, the royal icing, the other measured ingredients...made for an incredible delicious and actually achievable meal! It's one of the best I've done. I really really really appreciated how everything was shipped. I also love Stephanie Izard and Girl & the Goat in general. Can't wait to do it again.

The Meal Kits from the Girl and the Goat are literally one of the best things available online right now. We've done two regular meal kits and two cook alongs, and we can't get enough of what Stephanie and her team creates. They have all been spectacular. Well thought out. Beautifully packaged. Challenging enough for a foodie/amateur chef like me while still being very easy to follow and execute. Delicious. And great portions. A wonderful value for your money and time. Girl and the Goat on Goldbelly is now our go-to for Pandemic at home Date Night.
