You and your guests will never have to put up with a dry roast again!
Roast chicken ideas – it all starts with the seasoning
It’s all well and good having a top quality piece of meat, but your roast will be nothing without a little seasoning. If you miss this important step when cooking your chicken, your meat could end up dry and tasteless. Luckily, our top seasoning and marinade tips have got you covered.
Seasoning: This all comes down to personal taste. If you’re serving your chicken with some simple vegetables and potatoes, you may only want a sprinkle of salt and pepper. If you want to try something a little spicier, paprika, cinnamon and chili are great, while rosemary or thyme will give it a more traditional herby flavor. To season your chicken, simply rub your herbs and spices thoroughly into the skin.
Marinating your meat a few hours before you cook it will prevent it from drying out in the oven, making your chicken crispy and super tasty. For extra juice and flavor, try pouring a spoonful of your marinade over the meat while it’s roasting.
To roast your chicken in the oven, you’ll need to dedicate some serious time and care to it. With the proper attention, you can serve the juiciest, tastiest roast to your family.
First, put your chicken breast down on a grill tray and place it inside your preheated oven at 400°F. Place a large baking tray at the bottom of the oven – this will catch any drips, which you can use for stock or gravy afterwards. A whole chicken needs about 60 to 80 minutes in the oven, depending on the size, and should be turned over halfway through. Looking for a top tip? Brush your meat with your homemade marinade or stock while it’s cooking to keep it from drying out.
When the time’s up, stick a skewer into the thigh where the meat is thickest. If the juices run clear, your roast chicken is ready!
