However, Amidst all the foods I want to prepare, I’m sure of making a delicious oven grilled marinated whole chicken. That’s undebatable.

There is no prettier sight than a well plated shining whole grilled chicken at the center of your dining table with other dishes surrounding it.

What you need:

* A processed whole chicken (feathers and intestine removed)
* Ginger and Garlic

* Habanero Pepper

* Onions
* Blender
* Curry
* Ground black pepper
* Yagi Spice (Suya spice)
* Seasoning Cubes
* Soy sauce (optional)
* Salt
Preparation
The chicken is washed and clean (even if it was purchased at the supermarket).
Then, it is patted dry and cored slightly below the skin surface. This allows easy penetration for the marinade.
Marination
 
This is the process of applying different spices on protein in order to make it very tasty when it is cooked.
Marination can be in form of dry rub or MARINADE is made.
Marinade is made when different root, spices and veggies are blended to create a liquid.
Today! I’m making a wet rub (marinade)
* I combine all in a blender.. peppers, little oil, diced ginger garlic, seasoning etc and blend.

* Using a brush or foam, apply the marinade generously on the whole chicken.

* Wrap in foil and refrigerate for at least 3-5 hours ( the longer the duration, the sweeter it becomes and the more the marinade would have penetrated)

* Bring out, remove the foil or if you want to grill in the foil, no problem and place on the oven tray.

* Grill for 40 minutes at 200°c. Bring out.

* Prepare another fondue (mayonnaise + ketchup + black pepper) and mix up with groundnut oil and apply on the chicken.

* Put back for another 15 minutes and you have a very beautiful shiny brown oven grilled chicken.

Let me know how it comes out if you decide to try it out. Have a food filled week.
