Spicy Crispy Chicken


It looks like I haven't been roasting any chicken yet this year, have I? heh..heh... Well, I did but I did not have the time to snap any pictures let alone write a post. You know, writing an eating out post is so much easier than writing a cooking post.

I just snap some pictures of what I eat and then tell you about it and wham! bang! habis cerita. But a cooking post .....ala .....got to make it look good, make the chicken pose nicely and then write the recipe. A lot of work lah.

So. I found one half chicken in the freezer. Well, actually there were two. The first one I roasted with very good results and I decided to do another one.

I marinated the chicken for 24 hours in the fridge, uncovered like this.


Then I left it out for a good 2 hours to come to room temperature.


I lined another tray with aluminum foil (for easier cleaning) and placed a wire rack on top. Then the chicken goes on the rack.


I place the tray on the turntable of my oven to roast the chicken at 180C for 55 minutes. My oven gets too hot, so if I place the chicken on the middle rack, it gets burnt.

After 55 minutes (this timing was from the previous week's experience), it came out looking like this with lots of delicious drippings.


The skin was very crispy. And due to my very generous application of spices and salt (and the long marination), the chicken tasted wonderful.


Eaten with just a Broccoli Slaw, it made for a very nice low carb meal. Oh yes, I do go low carb on certain days to balance things off. If I remember correctly, I overindulged in wanton mee, tacos and bacon popcorn. Ooops!!!

  3. satu idea yang bagus,cara nak panggang ayam. Tentu ia masak sekata tanpa perlu dialih-alihkan, sebab bahagian bawah dapat pengudaraan yang cukup semasa membakar. TQ PH bagi idea !

  7. The first one you roasted with very good results must have been the chicken leg...it's more blackened and roasted! ;) The inside of your oven shows an oven that has been put to good and frequent use...haha! ;D Now who ate the half chicken? Kekeke! :D

  9. Now I remember why I bought an oven, it’s bec of your grilled chicken and cakes. Unfortunately I never get to utilize it yet...got myself an air fryer not too recent and been using It instead for grilled chicken, two pieces of wings and one drumstick. :$
