Cooking whole baked chicken with aromatic herbs:
Step 1: prepare the chicken.This chicken recipe is very simple and easy, but requires a little of your attention. And start with the most important thing with a broiler chicken, if you bought it in a store, then the chicken is already peeled, but if you bought it in the market, there may be small feathers on the carcass that need to be removed. Pry the feathers with a knife and pull them out with a light jerk of your hand. Then get rid of all the insides, remove the kidneys, liver, ventricle and lungs. Now the chicken must be burned so that it does not have thin small hairs. Remove the burner and turn on the stove to its full capacity, gently take the chicken in your hands and turn it in different directions above the fire, so you will singe small hairs on its carcass. After thoroughly rinse the chicken under running water from all kinds of contaminants. Place the carcass on a cutting board and dry it with paper kitchen towels to prevent excess moisture. Leave the chicken on the cutting board for a while and cook the marinade.
Step 2: prepare the marinade.Put in the deep bowl the right amount of spices and herbs, which are written in the ingredients, add salt and vegetable oil to the same bowl. Mix the ingredients with a tablespoon until smooth and your marinade is ready. As for vegetable oil, instead of it you can use olive, sunflower or corn, the main thing is that it is odorless and refined, just such oil does not foam during baking and frying. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Step 3: prepare the filling.Now prepare the filling, peel the garlic and onion and rinse with lemon under running water. After that, dry the ingredients with paper kitchen towels and act as desired, for example, lemon can be cut into rings, slices or just cut into 2 - 3 halves. Chop the onion in large pieces or, like lemon, cut into 3 to 4 parts, but the cloves of garlic can be put whole or chopped into smaller pieces. Once you have decided on the slices, put the prepared ingredients in one deep plate.
Step 4: prepare the chicken for baking.Place the chicken breast-down in a greasy, thick-bottomed non-stick baking dish. 1 tablespoon of fat is enough to lubricate the mold. Lift the upper skin on the carcass near the hips and the tail and grease the meat with a generous portion of the marinade. Now turn the chicken upside down, lift the skin on the chest, grease the meat with marinade and do not forget to treat the chicken with aromatic liquid inside. After stuffing the chicken first with garlic, then onions and lastly with lemon, it will block the hole, and during baking it will give a lot of juice which, flowing into the form, will soften the lower crust of the baked chicken. Lubricate the surface of the chicken with the remaining marinade without missing a single piece, rub the aromatic mixture thoroughly, sparing no effort.
Step 5: bake the chicken.Place the chicken in the preheated oven and bake the bird for 1 hour, during this time it is covered with a beautiful golden brown crust. Every 10 - 15 minutes using a tablespoon, water the bird with the juice that will stand out from it during baking. After an hour, remove the mold, helping yourself with a kitchen towel, cover the chicken with a sheet of aluminum foil so that there are no gaps between the container and the foil, and return it to the oven for 30 minutes. After the required time has passed, check the chicken is ready, remove the foil, arm yourself with a knife and insert it into the flesh of the bird in the region of the inner side of the thigh. Light juice should flow from the cut, and the meat should be gray in color without blood clots and without the inherent pink color of a raw bird. If the bird has not been baked, let it go in the oven until fully cooked under a sheet of foil. 10 - 15 minutes but do not forget that you can dry the chicken for baking 1,5 a kilogram bird is quite enough 1 hour 30 minutes based 30 minutes per 500 grams chicken meat. After the desired time has passed, turn off the oven and let the chicken stand in it for a while 10 to 12 minutes. Well, and now, if you wish, you can serve the fragrant bird in the form in which it was baked or lay it on a large flat dish, in any case, the chicken is served whole.
Step 6: serve the whole baked chicken with aromatic herbs.Chicken baked in the oven with aromatic herbs, served hot whole.
