Weekend Menu #89 : roasted nam yue chicken

We were having a roast menu over the weekend.  I actually cooked this 2 days in a row, since everyone liked it.

Here is my current oven-roasted recipe. Super love this recipe. I used to deep-fry nam yue chicken but I decided to use different method the other day. After all, my oven was under-utilised.

It turned out good; the meat was tender and tasty. The skin?  Not crispy as I didn't glaze it through the roasting but it was lovely. I couldn't ask for a better roasted chicken.

So, who want to come over for dinner? ;)

1 chicken thigh
1 Fu Chung beancurd (nam yue) cube
1 tbsp. nam yue sauce
1 tbsp. light soy sauce
1 tbsp. Shao Xing wine
1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp white pepper
1 tsp grated garlic
1 tsp grated ginger

1. Rub the chicken thigh evenly with all the ingredients above.  Let it marinate for few hours or better, overnight before roasting.
2. Pre-heat electric oven at 220C for 10 minutes.
3. Place the chicken on a wire rack with a baking tray lined with aluminium foil at the bottom.
4. Roast for 40 minutes or till the chicken is cooked.
5. Let it cool down before chopping and serve.

We love roast chicken. It is one of the easiest dish to do but I don't usually roast until the skin so charred because the boys wants to eat the skin too.
