Sunday roasted chicken and gravy. Sweet baked potatoes on the side. Your kitchen will smell like heaven.
That’s what was going through my mind while reading about Mazi’s roasted chicken. I was a bit afraid, the recipe sounded a bit too simple, will the meat be flavory enough? Nonsense – it was spectacular.
And it’s so easy to make you won’t believe me when I’ll tell you how I did it. (This is my version, based on Mazilique’s recipe).
- 1 chicken
- 3 and a half cups flour (Mazi says use 2,5 cups, I think it’s better to have more dough.)
- 3 cups and a half salt
- 2 cups white wine.
- 1 lemon, 1 lime
- garlic, lots
- spices and herbs, lots
- salt, pepper
Mix the salt and flour in a big bowl. Add the white wine and mix well.
Take the dough, knead it and then roll it into a sheet. The dough will not be elastic.
Take the lemon and lime, slice them in two and stuff the chicken with them. Add a some garlic. The more the better, I say 🙂
Then cover the chicken in the dough. Practice makes perfect, I am sure.
You then put in the pre-heated oven and bake for 1 hour and a half at 200 C/ 392 F.
Then break the now very hard shell and enjoy! (You will lick your fingers 🙂
