  1. Step One: roast the chicken.
  2. If the chicken is soaked, drain and pat dry on paper towels. Place the cut up chicken pieces in roast pan. Use no liquid or oil. Lightly shake salt and pepper to taste and add the sprig of rosemary. Cover roast pan and place in 350 degree preheated oven for 1 hr This step can be completed up to an hour ahead of finishing. Remove the chicken from roasting pan and place on a wire rack until it is thoroughly drained.
  3. Step Two: coat and finish the spitzad.
  4. In a mixing bowl whisk the eggs until they begin to thicken slightly. Add lemon juice slowly while continuing to whisk vigorously until all of the lemon juice is incorporated.
  5. Place a dry, high sided, heavy bottomed sauce pot over high heat for a few moments until the bottom is thoroughly heated. Place the drained chicken pieces in the pot and slowly begin to drizzle in the egg/lemon mixture, constantly turning the chicken with a wooden spoon.
  6. You will notice that the egg/lemon mixture will coat the chicken and the heat will make the coating firm. When all of the mixture has been used and the coating is good and firm you may turn the chicken out onto a serving platter.
  7. Enjoy eating them with your fingers if you dont want to fuss with a knife and fork.
