Oven-Baked Herbed Chicken

Ingredients

Ingredients:
1 whole chicken- about 1.5 kls
1 bunch lemongrass
1 big onion, chopped
30 cups g McCormick Zesty Garlic Mix, dissolved in 1/2 water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary herb
1/4 teaspoon ground peppercorn
25 grams butter, about

Preparation

1
Clean the chicken. Make sure to remove the small feathers in the skin. Remove the insides. Wash the chicken and pat dry.
2
In a bowl, mix the zesty garlic, 1/8 tsp ground peppercorn and salt. Pour over the chicken and inside the cavity. Let the chicken absorb the flavor. Marinate overnight in the fridge.
3
Pre-heat oven to 210°C.
4
Remove the chicken from the marinade.
5
Rub the chicken with the calamansi juice.
6
Stuff the lemongrass and chopped onions inside the chicken through its cavity.
7
Rub the chicken with butter.
8
Then sprinkle the rest of the ground peppercorn and the rosemary.
9
Secure the legs of the chicken with a string or lemongrass leaf.
10
Wrap the chicken in foil, in doing this, we are sure all the flavors will be absorb by the chicken. Then place into a baking dish.
11
Bake for 1 hour.
12
Then carefully remove the top foil (not the entire foil, just the piece that covers the chicken).
13
Bake for another 1 hour. We want to have that tender crisp and nice golden brown color of the chicken.
14
When done, let stand for about 5-10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
