Roast Chicken With Rosemary


After several attempts in roasting chicken, I started to believe in the secret ingredients - the garlic, the lemon and the herbs. This time, fresh Rosemary is used rather than dried herbs. The result is fantastic! 

I played some art to decorate the food. See the colorful cherry tomatoes, snow peas and capsicum? They are good to accompany the entrée.


Roast Chicken With Rosemary
Serves 2

Ingredients:

2 chicken thigh, excess fat discarded
2 sprig of Rosemary
1 tbsp of olive oil
Vegetables of your choice  (raw or blanched)

Chicken Rub:

3/4 tsp of sea salt
5 cloves of garlic, grated
1 tbsp of honey
dash of black pepper powder
zest of one lemon
juice of half lemon

Steps:

1. Mix all the ingredients and seasoning for the chicken rub. Rub it over the chicken thighs, and marinate it for overnight.

2. Arrange the chicken thigh on roast pan. Sprinkle 1 tbsp of olive oil over it and roast it with Rosemary at 200 degree Celsius for 50 minutes or until the chicken is brown. Discard the Rosemary and serve the chicken with vegetables of your choice.

Simple and delicious! I used have rosemary and honey chicken at this restaurant before I came to the UK. Looks like I have to cook this myself to satisfy my cravings!

Rosemary is magic I believe! It lifts the flavours like anything. I have bunches of them int he back garden and they grow so well (too well!)

Yes, I agreed with you that fresh herbs worked better than dried one for roasting. Your roasted chicken looks so yummy and beautiful to pair with those colourful veggies! I must start to learn roasting now. ;)
