Special Roast Chicken

My aunt gave my mom an advance birthday gift by buying her a turbo broiler! We were so excited to use this so I searched for a simple recipe for a roast chicken. I came across Mama Sita’s FB page and found Janice De Belen’s Special Roast Chicken using Mama Sita’s Oyster Sauce. Good thing we already have Mama Sita’s Oyster Sauce plus most of the ingredients so I just have to buy a few of those ingredients.

Wow, this is so delicious! The chicken was so tender, tasty and juicy! It is much better than the lechon manok’s we buy from different stores. By the way, I stuffed tanglad(lemongrass) inside the chicken cavity, it is optional, you may or may not add it.

Special Roast Chicken

1 whole chicken(1-1.5 kilos) washed under running water, trim and remove extra skin
1 ½ tbs crushed black pepper
1 tbs salt
1 ½ tbs garlic powder
½ cup Mama Sita’s Oyster Sauce
1/3 cup honey
Tanglad (lemongrasss) enough to stuff chicken, optional

1. Combine black pepper, salt and garlic powder and rub it all over the chicken. Set aside.

2. Combine oyster sauce and honey and pour it all over the chicken, making sure that it is all coated inside and out.

3. Stuff the tanglad inside the chicken cavity.

4. Put the whole chicken(breast side down) inside the turbo broiler and set it to 175’C for 60 minutes.

5. Every once in awhile, brush leftover sauce on the chicken to prevent it from drying out.

6. After 30 minutes, turn the chicken on the other side so the heat will be evenly distributed otherwise the top part will be burnt.

7. After timer’s up, leave the chicken inside the turbo broiler for at least 10-15minutes then chopped it to serving size.
