I heard the term Broasted years ago (re chicken), and thought it meant, broiled or boiled and then roasted, i.e. a cooking method. I took a quick look on the web & noticed it may be referring to a cooking device(?) called a broaster. Also noticed broasted potatoes. Has anyone had broasted chicken, how does it taste, can we prepare it at home?
A side note: Years ago my aunt worked for a company called Restaurant Associates. She told us a woman called in and kept asking, "Where can I find BRRRRROASTED chicken. I want BRRROASTED chicken!" We giggled about it for years and kept repeating BRRROASTED. (Yes, my family is a little odd )
