Recipe comes from a cookbook "The Chicken Cookbook" edited by Simona Hill.
How to make it...
Ingredients:- 1 chicken (about 1,5 kg)
- juice of 1 lemon
- 4 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper (used only 1 teaspoon)
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon coarse black pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
In a small bowl combine garlic, cayenne, paprika, oregano, pepper and oil. Mix well. Rub evenly over the surface of the chicken. Cover and leave to marinate for 2-3 hours at room temperature or chill overnight.
Season the chicken with salt on both sides. Transfer to a shallow roasting pan, without the lemon juice, leave it behind. Put the pan in a cold(!) oven and set temperature to 200 C. Roast for about 1 hour or until the chicken is cooked, turning occasionally and basting with the pan juices. To test prick with a skewer: the juices that ran out should be clear. Enjoy!
