Roast Chicken

Go crazy. Grow some vivacious flowers in your front yard and backyard and balcony.



And then eat some chicken πŸ™‚ Stay healthy.


Roast chicken can be soft, soothing, dark, action-packed, sweet, spicy …just like a poem. Like a song.



Does anybody ever regret preparing-cooking-presenting-eating-blogging- critiquing β€˜Chicken’ ? πŸ™‚


2lb roasting chicken

salt and pepper to taste

1/2 tbsp fresh garlic paste

4tbsp honey

2 tbsp olive oil

Juice of 1 lemon + 2 for stuffing

1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary, thyme and oregano for rubbing and stuffing (dried herbs will work too)

To bring a dramatic effect, add some Orange/Blood orange juice with the marinade


Marinate chicken with all the above ingredients.

Now bake/roast chicken at 350Β° for about 45 minutes, then cranke the heat up to 450Β° for the last few minutes. The chicken will brown beautifully.

Tip: Wedges of aromatic fruit such as lemons or oranges will perfume the bird as it roasts, infusing the meat with extra flavor.

To add another level of freshness serve chicken with some fresh salad. Feel the flavor explosion into your mouth.

  1. I always love your recipes and food-photography and presentation!! ❀ Wishing to taste them once πŸ˜€

    • Thanks very much for your sweet words. I’ll cook you all your favorite dishes, if you visit me with some of your ‘angry bird’ cupcakes πŸ™‚

  2. love the sexy look of your roast chicken and believe whole heartedly that its yummi too:D Most fascinating is the idea of using orange/blood orange juice! I usually use honey( coz it never got to my head of using your artistic idea) to glaze my roast chicken:) I bake @ 450 for the first 10 minutes ,then reduce the heat to 350 for 30 minutes or a lil longer….check it with a tooth pick to see if the juice runs clear! That way it locks the juice and makes it juicy,not tough!
    Hey Shuborna, it is really very provocating! hehehe Gr8 photography too πŸ˜€

    • I believe you can. Just cover the chicken with a big dome-like lid so that the heat doesn’t leak out πŸ™‚
      Happy roasting πŸ™‚
