Honey & Thyme Roast Chicken

I think no one will say no to fried chicken or roast chicken, right?  I am constantly looking for new recipe and flavour for roast chicken or fried chicken because I love to eat  chicken meat.  When I see new post of roast chicken from fellow bloggers, I will usually visit to view their ingredients and if the ingredients are simple and easy, I will not hesitate to try it out.

I have in fact have tried out many version of roast chicken but rarely post it to my blog because it is just not good timing to take pictures during evening time.  Well, if I can, I will try to snap few if good lighting permits me to do so.

Honey & Thyme Roast Chicken 
Makes 6
(Recipe Source from Jessie - Cooking Moments with slight change) 

6 ChickenDrumsticks
6 Sprigs Fresh Thyme
6 tbsp Melted Butter
4 tbsp Honey
2 tbsp Ginger Juice * 
2 tbsp Shao Xing Cooking Wine
1.5 tbsp Garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp Light Soy Sauce
1 tsp Five Spice Powder
1 tsp Salt 

(I use 2 tsp ginger powder dilute in 2 tbsp water) 

1. Marinate Chicken with all other ingredients & refrigerate overnight.
2. Preheat oven to 180C(fan-forced).  Cook in the middle level for 15 minutes.
3. Remove, baste the chicken with the marinade & put back to the oven.
4. Reduce heat to 175C. Repeat Step 3 every 12-15 minutes until golden & the chicken parts
   are cooked through. 

The chicken skin will be browned very quickly after each basting, so do watch out the heat or alternatively, cover with foil.

Absolutely delicious!  All roast chicken are delicious even if you marinated with simple ingredients.  

A fuss free meal and less utensils to wash up or scrub your kitchen stove later.....LOL!!
