in blurtchef •  4 months ago 


Good morning my friends with a delicious roasted chicken that everyone loves . Let’s make it together


1 whole chicken (1.5 - 2 kg)
1 lemon
20 sprigs of thyme
10 sprigs of rosemary
125 gr. butter (at room temperature)
30 gr. olive oil

For the potatoes

1 kg of potatoes, peeled and chopped quinces
200 gr. olive oil
20 gr. garlic, finely chopped
5 gr. thyme
5 gr. rosemary, finely chopped
50 gr. Dijon mustard
75 gr. lemon juice
lemon zest
50 gr. honey


Put the marinated potatoes in a pan. Cut the ends of the wings and the neck of the chicken. Salt the chicken well inside and out and place it, with the breast on the upper side in the pan with the potatoes. Cut the lemon in half and place it inside the chicken together with the thyme and half the amount of butter. Grease the chicken outside with the rest of the butter and bake it in a preheated oven at 90 ° C until the breast has an internal temperature of 60 ° C (about 2 hours). Remove the chicken from the oven and let it rest for half to an hour. Spread the chicken everywhere with the olive oil. Raise the oven temperature to maximum and return the chicken to cook, until it gets dark and intense color, about 15 to 20 minutes. Be careful not to burn it. Remove the chicken and portion it, removing the thighs and breasts with a sharp knife.

Tips: The process of cooking at low temperature will give us an extremely juicy result in the chicken. We can have cooked the chicken from the previous day and add color and heat it when we want.

Stay safe and healthy my friends and take care of your people

My best wishes from Greece
