I love roast chicken, even in summer. On cooler days, I’ll roast a whole chook for dinner and the leftovers are perfect for sandwiches and stir-fries the next day.
One of my favourite recipes is smoked paprika roast chicken. I love the taste of sweet honey with the warmth of paprika and the mouth-watering crispy skin.
Recipe: Smoked Paprika Roasted Chicken
Mods: Used regular paprika, added chilli powder, used salt and minced garlic instead of garlic salt, margarine instead of butter
As with most of our summer dinners, it is served outdoors with a couple of basic mosquito and fly protection devices. Dang flying insects! I guess they have to eat too. Just wished it wasn’t me or my dinner though!
[By the way, we ate all our greens before the chicken was ready. We got hungry waiting!]
Oh and if you would like to try other great tried-and-true roast chicken recipes, you can’t go pass my all-time favourite tandoori chicken recipe which my mum shared with me and Jamie Oliver’s perfect roast chicken recipe. Jamie’s recipe is a little bit fancy but it packs a lot of flavour!
I’m always trying new roast chicken recipes. I have a stack of them filed away but only a few I cook over and over again. So please
