Roast Chicken Thigh With Herbs



Ever since I prepared roast chicken for our New Year's dinner, hubby is kept on pestering me for more. Luckily getting the oven to perform the roasting process is super easy, I decided to pamper him with another round. :) This time is herbs flavored roast chicken, served with roast potato, carrot and blanched broccoli, I'm done with the dinner. :)



The method is almost the same as the previous recipe, just with different ingredients. The chicken thigh is marinated with grated garlic, salt, soy sauce, oyster sauce, black pepper powder, honey and generous amount of mixed herbs. It was marinated for overnight.

The next day, the marinated chicken was roasted in the preheated oven at 220 deg C for 20 minutes. While doing this, I peeled and cut the potato, carrot and floreted the broccoli. Half boiled the potato and carrot, set aside. Blanched the broccoli and set aside. After 20 minutes, add in the potato and carrot to the chicken, sprinkle olive oil and mixed herds over it. Continue to roast the chicken for another 30 minutes. Does it sound simple?

Wahh ur photo making me wanna rost the chicken too..
Can i know do u roast the chicken in "tray" , do i need to turn the chicken over half way baking ?

so the total baking time is 220C (20min +30 min) right?

Thanks!

Hi Simonne, I roast the chicken in baking tray. Yea, you are right on the total roasting time. But, you can always adjust the temperature and time as different oven tends to have different result. I didn't turn the chicken, but I always have the skin facing up.
