Easy Roast Chicken

One of my favorite things to eat while in Australia was roast chicken. Every time my sister and I go to the supermarket, we always pick up a tray of seasoned chicken that’s ready to roast. The roast is always a huge hit in the house, and the kids that are normally hard to feed have chicken bones piled up their plates. I wanted to replicate the chicken, so I tried my hand at making them from scratch, using the roast chicken seasoning she sent us in one of the balikbayan boxes.

The seasoning lists wheat cereal, herbs, spices, sea salt, caster sugar, vegetable powders and flavor enhancers as its ingredients. Since I want it to have a stronger flavor, I added in some Italian herbs: thyme, rosemary, marjoram, capsicum, oregano, basil, garlic and parsley, all dried. I rubbed the seasoning and the herbs, and popped in the chicken in the oven to roast. The result? Incredibly flavorful chicken!

  1. Clean the chicken parts and put them in a roasting pan.
  2. Sprinkle a generous amount of roast seasoning and herbs over the chicken and rub into the chicken until it’s fully coated.
  3. Arrange the chicken in the pan so there’s no overlapping parts. Cover the roasting pan with aluminum foil.
  4. Put the chicken inside a preheated oven set to 350F.
  5. Roast the chicken for 40 minutes. Take out the pan from the oven and remove the aluminum foil. Return the pan into the oven and roast for 10 minutes uncovered.
  6. Turn the chicken parts to brown the other side and roast for another 10 minutes (uncovered).
  7. Take the chicken out of the oven and serve while hot.
