The Skinny: Let’s get this out of the way first — this was the best rotisserie chicken ever.
La Poulette, a petite Gallic-themed restaurant situated in a building just north of downtown Delray Beach that once was home to Granger’s, says it uses only free-roaming, locally farmed birds that are slow-cooked in its rotisserie oven.
I could smell the sautéed onions as the server brought the plate to the table — it was like the olfactory equivalent of French onion soup.
The caramelized bits of onion covered the plump, juicy and tender chicken breast, which was bursting with flavor, a la Française, as it were. The skin was perfectly crispy, too.
