Roasted Chicken

as promised. i made these for lunch today.
















Rosemary & Blackpepper Roasted Chicken

1 bird chicken
1 tbsp dried ground Rosemary (i use Italian mix herbs i.e. rosemary, thyme, oregano, basil, marjoram)
1 tsp black ground black pepper
3 tbsp black pepper sauce ( i use PAWADA blackpepper sauce only)
2 tbsp olive oil ( i subsitute with cooking oil)
3 cloves garlic (kisar or tumbuk halus)
salt to taste

marinate chicken with all the above ingredients for 45mins to 1 hour.
lightly grease your baking tray and grill the chicken for 45mins to 1 hour under 220degrees. or until the meat fully cooked.

Blackpepper Gravy
Do not throw away the juices that comes out from the chicken. Pour into a saucepan, add 2 tbsp butter, let it melt under medium heat. Add 1 tbsp flour, mix well and let it simmer for 2 mins. Pour 1 1/2 cup warm water, mix well for 2 mins. Add 1 tsp mix Italian herbs, 1 leaf dried bay leaves (for flavour), 3 tbsp blackpepper sauce or 2 tbsp black pepper sauce and 1 tsp ground blackpepper and salt to taste. Mix well and let it thicken under medium heat for 6 mins, stir from time to time.
you may remove the bay leaf immediately. if you prefer stronger flavour, leave them in the gravy.

Grilled Potato
5 potato (cut into strips)
1 tbsp olive oil ( i subsitute with cooking oil)
1 tbsp ground dried basil
1 tbsp hungarian paprika powder
salt to taste
mix all the ingredients, spread on a baking tray. Grill under 200degrees until golden brown.
and the result of today's marathon cooking, my oven is now will have to be put to rest due to over utilised. sob... sob... there goes my baking frenzy.
