ROASTED CHICKEN

This whole-roasted chicken is perfect for a delicious dinner at home! And so easy, too šŸ˜‰!
Because everyone should have a great roast chicken recipe in their arsenal.

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole chicken, skin on
  • One head of garlic, peeled
  • A handful of parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 cup of dry white wine or Manzanilla
  • 1 cup of water
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Ā 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven and a roasting pan to 200Ā°C
  2. First, make sure that the chicken is completely dry; pat any moisture off with paper towels.
  3. Put the chicken into a deep roasting pan.
  4. In a food processor, make a paste with the garlic cloves, salt, parsley and pepper. You will not need to use all of this paste, and it can last a few weeks in the fridge in an airtight container.
  5. Stuff the chicken with a couple of tablespoons of the paste, and cover it with a bit more. Then rub the skin with olive oil.
  6. Pour the wine and water around the chicken
  7. Cover the chicken in a damp piece of parchment paper.
  8. Depending on the size of the chicken, the time in the oven may vary. I cooked my 2.5 kg chicken for about one hour (until the juices ran clear, not pink).
  9. During the last 15 minutes in the oven, remove the parchment paper and let the skin become crispy. If it is not crisping up use the broiler for a few minutes.
  10. Serve with homemade French fries (I like to fry unpeeled garlic cloves with my homemade fries, they come out tender and delicious.
