Thyme and Oregano Roast Chicken Recipe


I love the aroma of oregano roasted chicken. Instead of using rosemary herbs, I opted for thyme, which is not overpowering so that I can still keep the aroma of oregano on the chicken. You can soak the chicken in brine solution and keep it in the fridge overnight. The brine solution would keep the chicken juicy even after roasting in the oven.

Ingredients
Chicken, butterfly cue, 1 whole, soak in brine solution overnight
Sugar, 1 tablespoon
Oregano, 1 tablespoon, dried powdered
Thyme, 3 springs  or 1 teaspoon of dried ones
Worchestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon
Lemon juice from 1 lemon
Dark soya sauce, just enough to rub the whole chicken skin

Remove chicken from brine solution and drain away excess water. Rub the chicken with all the ingredients and leave it for around 30 minutes to 1 hour. Roast chicken in preheated oven for 1 hour at 180 Deg C. Check it from time to time to make sure that the chicken is not burned.
Happy Cooking!

I like the dishes which are low on calories and fat and can be cook and serve in less time that make roasted chicken best option for people like me who are little bit more conscious about healthy food.

great! I might give this a try using cornish hens...the small sized chickens are just as tasty!
