Garlic Chicken Roast / Oven Baked Garlic Chicken / Garlic Roasted Chicken

Warning: Don't love garlic, please turn back. This recipe is not you. It is filled with garlicky flavour and tons and tons of garlic. You don't want to go for a date or go to a face to face conversation with someone you love or someone you hate. But the one advantage i can give you is, your house will smell so amazing when you bake this. Full of GARLICKY aroma..

How could such a yummy recipe can be this simple. Yes it is too simple, just a simple marination required. That too calls for just blending few stuffs together. The longer you marinate the chicken the better the flavour. I usually do marination the night before and leave it to infuse overnight, then cook it the next day.

This is a garlic roast chicken recipe, but i have a gravy version of garlic chicken which i love a lot. That is a kind of indo chinese recipe. I will surely post that soon.

Preparation Time : 10  mins
Resting Time : 6 hours or overnight
Cooking Time : 1 hour
Serves  - 4 to 5

Chicken - 1 whole cut into 10 pieces

For Marination:
Coriander Leaves / Cilantro - 5 tblspn
Garlic - 20 cloves
Peppercorns - 1 tblspn
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder / Manjal podi - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oregano - 1 tsp
Lemon Juice - 3 tblspn
Oil - 1/2 cup


Make deep slits over the cleaned chicken. Take them in a container.

Blend all the ingredients given in the marination list to a smooth paste.Add little water if needed.

Pour this over the chicken and mix them well.

Leave this to marinate for 6 hours or overnight in the fridge.

Take them out of the fridge before few hours, so it comes back to room temp.

Preheat the oven to 220 Degree C / 440 Degree F.

Take a foil lined tray and spray it with some oil. Arrange the chicken in this and bake it for 15 mins. Now pour off the excess liquid.

Now turn the oven to 180 Degree C / 360 Degree F and bake it for 40 mins.

Now flip the chicken on other side, turn the oven to 250 Degree C / 500 Degree F,  Bake it for 5 more mins so it gets nice colour.

Remove it from oven and serve with any bread or rice.
