Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 Whole Chicken (with Skin) (Around 700g dressed chicken)
  • 2 Orange
  • 5 Baby Potato
  • 5 Baby Carrot
  • 1 Zucchini
  • 1 Broccoli
  • 100g Mushroom
  • 1 Bell Pepper
  • 5 Shallot/ Mini Onion
  • 30g Parsley Curls (1/2 cup)
  • 1 Tbsp. Rosemary
  • 3 sticks Lemon Grass
  • 1 Tsp. Thyme (I did not have fresh)
  • 20 Garlic (10 Minced + 10 peeled)
  • 1.5 Tsp. Salt or to taste
  • 1 Lime (Big)
  • 1 Tbsp. Black Pepper Powder
  • 2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Butter
  • 1 Tsp. Onion Powder

Instructions

  1. Wash and pat dry the chicken with the skin on.
  2. Make a paste with Black Pepper Powder, little salt, onion powder, minced garlic, and also Lime juice and rub it over the chicken and also inside the inner cavity.
  3. Leave it for 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, wash veggies and cut Bell Pepper, zucchini, and broccoli into big chunks.
  5. Wash and cut Mushrooms as well.
  6. You do not need to cut or peel the Potatoes or baby Carrots.
  7. Remove the Onion skin.
  8. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180 degrees C for 10 minutes.
  9. Heat Olive Oil in a pan and saute the veggies for 5 minutes along with salt and black pepper.
  10. Now take an oven-safe tray and place the chicken in the middle.
  11. Cut Oranges into halves and squeeze the juice.
  12. Fill the chicken cavity with half of the Orange rinds along with parsley, rosemary, lemongrass, and thyme.
  13. Tie both legs with the help of lemongrass.
  14. Now place all the veggies in the tray.
  15. There will be some gravy in the tray coming from the veggies. Pour that over the chicken and veggies.
  16. Pour the juice over the chicken and veggies and place the rinds along with the veggies.
  17. Now place the tray in the middle rack of the oven and slow-roast at 150-160 degrees C for 1.5 Hours.
  18. For initial twenty minutes roast the chicken by covering the tray with a piece of aluminum foil.
  19. After every fifteen minutes brush the chicken and veggies with melted butter and keep the roasting on and remove it after that.
  20. Once done switch the oven off.
  21. Cut the knot and remove the spice from the cavity and serve the roast hot with the veggies.
  22. There will be ample moisture in the tray. Serve the gravy as it is or thicken it over the stove before serving it separately.

Notes

  • If Shallot is not available; cut a normal onion into four pieces and use.
  • The same is applicable to baby potatoes and baby carrots.
  • If fresh lemongrass is not available use a kitchen twig to tie the chicken. However, lemongrass enhances the flavor a lot.
  • I prefer small Chicken instead of a bigger one as I have a family unit of OTG at home and also small chicken (around 750g) makes the roast way better tender and juicy.
