Try these flavors to spice up your roast chicken

Roast chicken is one of the most popular dishes. Whether it's for the festive season or just with a Sunday 7 colour lunch, it's delicious and doesn't take much effort. However it can get a bit boring. In this article we will go over flavors that you can try to spice up your roast chicken.

Lemon and herb

The most common flavor is lemon and herb. With this one it's best to keep the ingredients as simple as possible. Stuff the chicken with lemon pieces, garlic cloves and greens such as Thyme, sage, rosemary. Rub the chicken with butter or olive oil and season generously with salt and black pepper. You could also melt garlic and butter in the microwave and use that to rub the chicken and you have beautiful lemon and herb flavored roast chicken.

Mediterranean styled chicken

For a more sweeter taste stuff it with half tangerines or oranges and herbs. Rub the chicken with the juice of the tangerine or orange, Honey and some white wine. You can glaze half way through cooking for extra flavor.

Maple glazed

Keeping with the sweetness, season your chicken and roast then melt butter and maple syrup with black pepper and brush over chicken during the last 15 minutes of roasting for a nice sweet glaze.

Moroccan inspired

For a more sweet-spiced chicken, rub the chicken with a butter that's been blended with cumin, coriander, sweet paprika, cayenne pepper and cinnamon. Add onions, garlic cloves, dates, and dried apricots along with some water to the pan as the chicken cooks to create a chunky gravy.

Curried flavor

For a nice curried flavor rub the chicken with butter, curry powder, paprika, cayenne, salt and pepper. Stuff the chicken with lemon and herbs. You can also add fresh chillies if you can handle heat. Garnish with coriander.

Chinese inspired

Melt butter with cloves and star anise and rub all over the chicken, then brush with a vinegary soy glaze during the last 15 minutes of roasting.
