Roasted Chicken

  • 1/4 cup Aji Panca Chili pepper paste

  • 1/2 cup Garlic freshly grated

  • 1/2 cup Red wine vinegar

  • Cumin To taste 

  • Black Pepper To taste 

  • Salt Kosher To taste 

Method:

  • The night before (I recommend , when possible , to marinate the chicken 12- 24 hours in advance) Combine all ingredients for the marinade in a large bowl and mix well.

  • Place the chicken in bowl, massage the marinade in and out.Making sure to place some of the marinade under the breast skin.

  • Store in the fridge overnight and uncovered .This will help to dry out the skin and will give you a nice crispy skin after baked !

  • Preheat oven to 350F.

  • Take the chicken out of the fridge about 30 minutes before roasting , place in roasting plan , breast side up .

  • Place the chicken in the middle rack of the oven , for approx 1:30 hours , until golden  brown and the internal temperature reaches 165F , the juices should run clear , not pink .

  • Let the chicken rest , before serving , covered loosely with aluminum , for about 15 to 20 minutes.

Enjoy !
