Roasted Chicken

Estimated cooking time: 1 1/2 to 2 hours
  • 2 kilo dressed chicken (broiler)
  • 2 cups of lemon grass (tanlad)
  • 3 tablespoons of cooking oil
  • 2 tablespoons of salt

  • Make sure the chicken is clean with no remaining small feathers and no insides.
  • Wash thoroughly and pat dry with a paper towel
  • Rub the whole chicken with cooking oil as well as the inside cavity.
  • Next apply salt all over, again, including the insides.
  • Fill the cavity with lemon grass
  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Place the chicken on an oven rotisserie.
  • If you don't have a rotisserie put the chicken on an elevated rack on a baking pan - breast side up (so the bottom of the chicken does not touch the baking pan).
  • Bake for 1 hour or until the chicken is golden brown. When you prick between the chicken thigh and body and the juice runs clear (not bloody) the chicken is done.
  • Serve with mashed potatoes, rice or corn on the side.
  • If baking at 325 degrees Fahrenheit, bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours in the oven.
