Original recipe from Apicius, De Re Coquinaria:
Pullus Leucozomus. Take a chicken and prepare it [for baking]. Slice it at the breast. Fill it with water and Spanish [olive] oil. Move it so that it gives off juice and absorbs [the oil-water mixture while baking.] Next, after it is cooked, lift it out of the remnants. Sprinkle with pepper and serve.
- translation by Michael Hobbes.
