Mommy's Roasted Chicken

I know a lot of people are celebrating Thanksgiving now. But as we Filipinos are not celebrating. Too bad. But we should always be thankful for all the blessings. I know Turkey is the main dish during Thanksgiving. Too bad it’s not that widely available in our market. So to mark the festivities my mother prepares a dish for the family last night of course it’s not tukey. But A simple roasted Chicken!

Here’ the ingredients:

·         whole chicken.
·         half stick of butter.
·         3  tablespoon soy sauce
·         5 tbsps of garlic, chopped.
·         1 tbsp of oreganoshopping list
·         1 tbsp of basil
·         1 tbsp of rosemary
·         rock salt
·         chicken liver (approx. 9 pieces)

How to make it

·         Pre-heat your oven (or turbo broiler) at 125 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes.
·         Rub the half stick of butter and the soy sauce all over and inside the chicken.
·         rub the entire chicken with rock salt, including the cavity (quantity of salt depends on your desired saltiness of the chicken)
·         rub the garlic all over the chicken and also on the inside.
·         rub the basil, rosemary and orergano mixture all over the chicken and also inside the chicken cavity.
·         stuff the chicken liver inside the chicken cavity.
·         After pre-heating for 15 minutes, put in the chicken inside the oven or turbo broiler (on top of the elevated grill that comes with the turbo broiler).
·         roast for about an hour or an hour and fifteen minutes. If you are using a turbo broiler, no need to turn the chicken over. To know if your chicken is ready, prick the thigh part and if the fluid running from the thigh is clear, then the chicken is ready.
·         Save the drippings.
·         Cook the drippings with cornstarch, pepper and lemon and serve as dip or sauce for the chicken. Enjoy! Happy Eating and thanksgiving!
