Christmas Roasted Chicken

Roasted Chicken is always a delight for everyone especially during festivities. This home made chicken recipe is even made easier with your microwave oven. All in less than one hour max.

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 fresh roasting chicken
  • 1 onion, 3pcs fresh pepper and 3-4 tomatoes blended nicely. Parboil it till liquid dries up and you are left with only a thick paste.
  • 1/2 tsp of Curry, thyme, ginger and garlic paste or powder, nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 /2 teaspoon chicken seasoning


Directions for preparing Roasted Chicken :


Mix all the seasoning ingredients together with the tomato paste and vegetable oil, then set aside.


Wipe the chicken all over with kitchen serviettes to dry the skin.

Brush the chicken with seasoning mixture properly, making sure that the seasoning penetrate even inside the chicken. I use my hands for the chicken massage.. Lol. Set aside on a ceramic plate for 30mins or longer for spice penetration.

Set your microwave oven to grilling setting (high) Roast the chicken, breast side up for 15 minutes, then carefully remove the chicken, turn the it over, so the breast is underneath now. Continue to cook for a further 10 minutes.


Take the chicken out and turn it over once more, with the breast side up now, and continue to roast for a further 10 minutes until crispy and golden brown.To check that it is cooked, pierce the fattest part of the thigh with a smooth pick.

If the juice looks reddish or show traces of blood, cook the chicken a further 10 minutes, then check again. As you turn over the chicken during roasting, drain the juice out.


If the juice is pale golden, the chicken is cooked.Using two forks, lift the chicken from the roasting plate onto the serving plate. and reserve the cooking juices to add to your main dish. I cooked fried rice to go with it.

Here you have it, your Christmas Roasted Chicken, served with fried rice, coleslaw, and fried plantain. It was a treat and the kids absolutely loved every bit of it.

Wishing you a beautiful Christmas celebration and a Prosperous new year ahead.
