This is one of the Roasted Chicken Leg that I had developed back then when I was the head chef for a healthy food’s central kitchen (not able to reveal the company name). Roasted with very simple ingredients, the sauce for this Roasted Chicken Leg was actually inspired by one of Jamie Oliver’s Chicken Recipe. Try out this Roast Chicken Recipe that used to be one of the best sellers!

Roasting Chicken, the English Way, Well Sort of…

First of all, I must admit that I am not very well versed in western cuisine or English cuisine. This is sort of a hack-away from Jamie’s recipe, where I modified it to suits the local’s preferences. However, our customers love it, love the chicken and the sauce. Hence here it is, the recipe for you!

I was looking for inspiration on what recipe to create, and I was sitting at my dining area, it just struck upon me the oven that my mother brought long ago and left unused. I recalled this simple roasted chicken recipe and I believe this Roasted Chicken Leg recipe will spice up your next meal!

Cooking Tips

  1. Meats marinated using salt does have a very low water absorption properties similar to the brining process.
  2. An alternative method of keeping the meat dry is to use fats. Types of fats to be used depends on the type of meat and important, the result that you yearn.
  3. However, I use water because I prefer to keep it as low fat as possible, hence I make use of the absorption properties causes by the salt.
