My kids love roast chicken.. I guess all kids love such things.. its generally easier to make this in the pan.. but the oven roasted touch is a great fragrant variant..
Marinate chicken a night before for best results.
1 whole chicken, cut into 12 pieces or as u wish..
1/2 bowl dahi
1 tbls garlic paste
1 tsp full paprika powder
1 tsp red chili flakes or to taste
1 level tsp salt or to taste
1 tsp black pepper powder
1 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp white pepper powder
1/2 tsp aamchoor
Mix all and marinate the chicken in this. Coating well with ur hands so as to reach all sides well.
Next day, preheat oven on 180.
Add 1 tsp papaya paste to the chicken and let it rest 10 mins. Put the chicken on a tray and pour over 1/4 cup oil. Cover with aluminium foil and bake at 200 foe 30 mins. Dont touch it.. just let it be.
After 30 mins remove and check. If its done, wonderful. Just baste with the gravy in the tray and let it get some colour under the grill without foil.
If not, turn chicken pieces over and cover again and bake for another 15 mins. By that time it should be done.. inshaAllah.
Remove and let it stay covered for a few mins before serving..
