Roast Chicken

Inspiration - If you all don't know, I am now in Dallas USA and have been just cooking lovely homely Malaysian food. Since I am in a cowboy land whereby they barbeque and oven roast or microwave almost everything, I told my first attempt at roast chicken would be appropriate.

Simple ingredient -
1. 2 whole chicken thigh
2. Vegetable - err lookd like cucumber but it's not, ohhh! the name just escapes me for now.
3. Marinate on chicken - salt, pepper, some soy sauce and oyster sauce if desired - how Asian of me! :)

Simple steps -
1) Just marinate the chicken with Salt, pepper, soy sauce and oyster sauce. Actually, it will taste better if marinate overnight. Just lay the chicken thighs on baking tray, the vegetable...aiyo, i still can't recall the name. Hang on I will get it by the end of this blog!! Put it into oven, here I am using only the toaster oven cos my portion is small and it can fit. Much easier and less messy and less washing.

2. Roast for 30 mins at temp of 350'. Watch the chicken once in a while to check how it's doing. not really required to turn unless you want the bottom side of chicken to be ultra crispy too. The beauty of roasting together with the vege is that it will be ready at the same time and it will be aromatic with the chicken's oil and stock.

3) Voila! Ready to eat! Yum yum! Here I served it with some plain spagetti and spinach. Oh YEAH...I still could not remember the vegetable's name so I did a google it is Zucchini!! Arrrgh - for the life of me, this word just slipped my mind and all I can think of is cucumber and capsicium for some reason. And btw, the zuchini taste great.
