Lime and Garam Masala Roasted Chicken

My neighbours chicken recipe: This Lime and Garam Masala Roasted Chicken Recipe is a regular dish they cook and being experts with spices, it's always a treat to sample their food.

I love my neighbours, they are extremely warm and generous people who are always willing to help, share and go out of their way to include us in their family.

Roast chicken recipes are my favourite and I'm always experimenting with different flavour combinations in rubs and marinades. See here for more roast chicken recipes and cooking tips. I enjoy using grapeseed oil to cook with but you can use any cooking oil you prefer. Another snag in this recipe is getting the limes. I had to go to a market instead of the store but in actual fact this turned out to be a bonus as I came across a lot of local farmers who sell fresh produce and I got to meet some great people and support the local community.

How To Cook Masala Roasted Chicken

  1. Only turn on your oven when you are ready to roast and the chicken has been in the refrigerator for the required time.
  2. Pat the chicken dry using some kitchen paper.
  3. Place the cooking oil and all of the remaining ingredients into a food processor and blend them into a paste.
  4. Rub half of the paste over the chicken. Cover the chicken and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight to marinade.
  5. Take the chicken out of the refrigerator one hour before roasting.
  6. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius or 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
