Hello friends
Welcome to ''my cuisine''. According to me cuisine or the culinary art is just that an art. The art of creating delicious foods with a conscience to health has various dimensions with which we can experiment and I have just started to experiment in my kitchen. There is nothing more heartwarming than a hot aroma filled food on a cold rainy day to cheer us up or nothing more satisfactory than satisfying the taste buds of our loved and dear ones.This was the reason i found my new love for cooking. Hope you would enjoy my various recipes......

Chicken roast (whole)

It was my long standing wish to buy a whole roast chicken to try and eat but being someone who doesn't eat meat which has no flavour other than its own we have never bought one. So this time I thought of roasting a whole chicken at home. Wow.. I guess it really was a success.... It was so succulent and full of flavour...one of the benefit of slow cooking I guess......Everyone should try it......Here is how I did it....

  • Whole chicken - 1
  • Black pepper powder - 3 tbsp
  • White pepper powder - 3 tbsp
  • Cayenne pepper - 2 tbsp
  • Thyme - 2 tbsp
  • Oregano - 1 tsp
  • Onion powder - 2 tsp
  • Garlic powder - 2 tsp
  • Onion - 1(quartered)
  • Salt  - 3 tsp
  • mix all the ingredients except the onion in a small bowl. Clean the chicken cavity and pat it dry.
  • Generally the next step would be to rub the spice mixture all over the chicken but what I did was to crisscross the surface of chicken with a sharp knife and then rub the spice mixture inside and outside of chicken. 
  • Place the quartered onion inside the chicken cavity. Double wrap the chicken with  plastic wrap Refrigerate overnight. 
  • Preheat the oven to 125 deg cel. Bake the chicken in a roasting pan for about 5 hrs. It would be done just to perfection.
Well now comes the part of carving the chicken to serve. Let it stand for 10 min so that some of the moisture oozed out could again be absorbed by the chicken. You could carve and serve it if its a formal dinner or lunch else just dig in. Thats exactly what we did..... :)))))))). One of the most easiest and simplest way to roast the chicken.....
