I have made roasted chicken a few times, and mainly used very asian seasonings like plum sauce, soya sauce etc. Roasted chicken is my favourite dish to cook, because it's simple to prepare, just marinate, pop into the oven and let it cook on its own.
This is my first 'western-style' roast. A search on the net will throw out plenty of recipes, but as with all recipes, not all will work well. So a big thanks to Gattina who provided the link for this recipe. I trust Gattina's recommendation and this recipe doesn't look too complicated. So I gathered my herbs(used dried rosemary and bay leaf in place of the fresh ones) and off I went to roast this chicken.
When we tucked into this chicken, we were surprised by how flavourful it was. Juicy, succulent and very very tender. Breast meat is usually the drier part of a roast, but not for this bird. We 'walloped' the entire chicken, together with some roasted vegetables. Initially I wanted to save some breast meat for a sandwich, but still ended up devouring everything. It was THAT good!
