Recipe Round-Up (The Spice House) Argyle Street Roasted Chicken

A Recipe Roundup is what happens when one of the 37 cooks thinks of a wonderful recipe weeks or months after the challenge ends. Enjoy!

The Spice House’s Argyle Street Asian Blend is a terrific combination of Thai-oriented ingredients (but will nicely accent many other recipes): Lemon grass, cilantro, coriander, chile peppers, garlic, ginger, onion, white pepper, and sesame seeds. This roasted chicken truly benefits from this spice blend: The flavors mingle well with the simple oil and soy sauce rub, and the spices and sesame seeds brown up quite nicely. Spatchcocking the bird for roasting allows for more even cooking and browning, making for a beautiful presentation. The result is a delicious take on your everyday roasted chicken!


Argyle Street Roasted Chicken
by Gary

1 whole chicken, about 4 pounds
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons light soy sauce
1 clove garlic, run through a press
Sea salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
The Spice House Argyle Street Asian Blend to taste

Preheat oven to 375°F. Prepare roasting pan by lining with foil, and spraying rack with cooking spray.

Spatchcock the chicken: Cut down the back bone of the chicken. Lay chicken out, skin side down. Press chicken out flat on either side of back bone, exposing breast. Press down along either side of the breast bone, removing it and the attached cartilage.

Combine vegetable oil, soy sauce, and garlic. Rub all over chicken, inside and out, paying attention to wing tips and rib areas. Season liberally with salt, pepper and Argyle Street Asian Blend. Tuck wing tips under. Place chicken, skin side up, on roasting rack. Roast, rotating pan halfway through cooking, for approximately 20 minutes per pound (about one hour, twenty minutes.)

Remove chicken to platter; let rest for 10 minutes. Cut into pieces and serve.
