Serves 4

  • 1 kg whole Chicken with skin on

  • 1 tablespoon Kashmiri red chilli powder

  • 1 teaspoon Coriander powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon Cumin powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon Black pepper powder

  • 1 1/2 tsp Ginger-garlic paste

  • 1 tablespoon Honey

  • 1 tablespoon white Vinegar

  • 3 tablespoon melted Butter

  • 1 teaspoon Salt

  • 2-3 medium sized Potatoes

  • 2 medium sized Onions

  • 2-3 pods Garlic

  • 2 Lemons


  • 01

    Clean and pat dry the chicken. Don't remove the skin. This will help to keep chicken moist.

  • 02

    Make a paste with ginger-garlic, chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, pepper powder, honey, vinegar, salt and melted butter. Add little water if necessary.

  • 03

    With a brush apply the prepared paste all over the chicken and also inside the cavity and under the skin if there is any gap.

  • 04

    Make sure that the paste is coated all the parts of the chicken nicely.

  • 05

    Cover and keep aside for atleast 2-3 hours. It is best if you keep the marinated chicken overnight in the refrigerator.

  • 06

    Take out the marinated chicken from refrigerator it atleast one hour before baking.

  • 07

    Cut the vegetables into halves at the time of baking.I kept potatoes with skin on.

  • 08

    Preheat oven at 220 degree C. for 10 minutes.

  • 09

    Take an oven proof dish. Pour some juices of chicken that released from the chicken to the dish.

  • 10

    Place potatoes, onions, garlic cloves and lemon at the bottom of the dish.

  • 11

    Put the chicken over the vegetables.

  • 12

    Place the dish in the pre heated oven. Keep both the rod of the oven on at the beginning.

  • 13

    After 15 or 20 minutes, turn off the top rod.

  • 14

    Bake for more 10 minutes. Then turn the chicken upside down to cook evenly.

  • 15

    Bake for 15 minutes more.

  • 16

    When the chicken is almost done, turn on the grill option of the oven( alternately you can place the dish on the top rack of oven with top rod on) to give a nice charred colour to the chicken.

  • 17

    When the top side gets charred, turn the chicken again to char the bottom side also.

  • 18

    Remove from oven when both sides of the chicken is roasted properly. It will take approximately 1 hour to roast the chicken completely.

  • 19

    Delicious juicy, moist, spicy and healthy roasted chicken is now ready to enjoy.

  • 20

    Spread roasted veggies on a serving dish. Over that place the roasted chicken. Garnish with some greens.
