Indian Spiced Roast Chicken. Amp up your roast chicken dinner with this version infused with the flavours of Indian spices, garlic, ginger and onions.
Originally published October 2013.
A roast chicken dinner is a great Autumn comfort food meal. However, sometimes it’s nice to mix it up and try something a little different to perk up your taste buds.
You wouldn’t want them getting lazy over the winter. 😉
Our family loves Indian dishes of all kinds. Here, we just used some of our favourite curry inspired spices to season the outside of the chicken.
The cavity also gets filled with aromatic ginger, garlic and onions. The result is flavour being infused into the meat from both directions for a very delicious result.
We served it with a warm couscous salad on this occasion but your favourite rice dish would also be great too.
