Oven fixed! Yippee!

The first thing I realised was all ingredients for baking have expired. I guess it has been that long. I was eager to use the oven and ended up roasting chicken for dinner. My first post for 2012.

This is an asian style roast and taste good. Here's the recipe :

1 chicken ( cleaned, washed and pat dried)
Marinade with : salt and pepper (to taste)
soya sauce ( about 2 tbsps)
oyster sauce (about 2 tbsps)
ginger juice (Thumb size ginger, finely chop and squeeze the juice over chicken)
dark soya sauce (about 1 tbsp)
3 pips of garlic (lightly smashed)

Other ingredients : 2 carrots and a few potatoes (all cut into chunks), place on a tray and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with a little oil all over.

  • Rub chicken with the marinade in an ovenproof dish and place in the fridge for about 2 hours.
  • Place carrots and pototoes with the chicken before putting it in the oven at 200 degrees celsius.
  • Roast without lid for about 20mins, turn the chicken and continue for another 20 mins.
  • Once the chicken is browned, cover with lid and continue to bake it till cooked, another 20 mins.

This is a simple one pot dish which I think the whole family will enjoy. The carrots and potatoes are soft and taste good with the chicken. It is not dry as the liquid from the chicken is all contained in the same pot.
