Here, chicken is frango. And roasted chicken is frango assado, one of my favorite (and easiest!) things to make when the weather turns cooler. This is the first time I've made a roasted chicken since we've been here. The temperature was cool for a few months when we arrived, but the rental cookware didn't include anything for roasting.
So today marked the first purchase of a whole chicken, and I knew it would be a little different when I saw Contém: pés on the package: Contains feet.
Here's what I pulled out. The neck is included as well (attached, no less), the heart (propping the feet up in the photo below), and I think its head is what laying on the right. I believe what looks like a beak is its tongue? (Do chickens have tongues?)
I WISH I had nails like these. Really! I mean, I'd probably wear them shorter, but compared to my paper-thin, short... Okay, I'm thankful I'm NOT a chicken butchered on the cutting board, but the nails are lovely.
And where am I supposed to put them, exactly?
