Anything cooked in butter is heaven, do you all agree to this. Then you will surely agree that this recipe is a heavenly dish. This is a simple recipe which calls for normal spices and stuff, but this roast gets its own flavour when it is cooked in a the most beautiful thing on earth, BUTTER..
You dont need to baby sit the chicken like you do normally. Just marinate the chicken with a bunch of spices and stuffs for few hours or ever the day before for best flavour. Then just 30 mins before your guest arrive 'start cooking'. So your house will be filled with a buttery spicy chicken aroma.
For the first 20 mins cook the chicken covered on low heat so it will leach out lots of its own water, in which the chicken will get cooked. Then for the next 10 to 15 mins cook without the lid on high heat. So the chicken gets crispy, brown, roasted and totally yummy.I hope you will try this out and let me know how it turns out for you..
