Whole chickens were on sale the other day at my local grocery store so I decided to pick one up. When it came time to cook it I was kind of at a loss for what I wanted to do. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go traditional and make something like my recipe for oven roasted chicken or if I wanted to spice it up a bit and try something a little different. When I am feeling indecisive like this, which can actually happen quite often, I ask Ryan what he would like and as you can see, we decided to go with something a little different. First I coated the chicken with a blend of Thai seasoning, serrano peppers, fresh ginger, fresh garlic and some kosher salt. Second, I sliced some onions and a few more cloves of garlic and sprinkled that around the chicken. Third, I mixed a little chicken broth with chili paste and soy sauce and poured that over the chicken before roasting. The result was a succulent roasted chicken with just a little kick.
Another great thing about this dish is that the roasting chicken, sliced onions, garlic and seasonings make the perfect sauce to ladle over some steaming jasmine rice.
If you are not a huge fan of spicy food, you can always tone down the amount of spice by eliminating the serrano peppers and sambal oelek, it is still just as delicious. Enjoy!
