History of Roast Chicken
People have been consuming roasted meats since the prehistoric era. It happened when the cavemen were done with eating the raw meat, and one of them decided to put a piece of meat on a stick and roast it over the fire. This tactic was improvised, and people experimented it with several types of meats; chicken, pork, beef, and mutton.
They included various spices and sauces in the recipe, and now we enjoy this exquisite dish. However, things had been hard for chefs and cooks until the nineteenth century. Up until the eighteenth century, the marinated meat was secured over a spit and hand-turned by the cook in front of the baleful fire. Following this recipe provided us with baked chicken. Thanks to the invention of clay or gas ovens and now electric ovens, it made cooks’ life easier as well as introduced roasted chicken, and now we enjoy this delish dish guilt-free.

To make the delicious traditional roast chicken at home, you will need:
- Whole Chicken: 1 kg (skinless)
- Water: 3 cups
- Salt: 7Tbsp
- Black Pepper Powder: 3tsp
- Olive Oil: half cup
- Paprika powder: 2tsp
- Chili Powder: 1tsp

Instructions of Making Roast Chicken:
|Brining time||3 hours|

|Bake time||20 to 25 minutes|
Add water and salt to a deep bowl and let the chicken brine in this salty water for three hours. Meanwhile, prepare the spices to marinate the chicken with. Take a small bowl, and mix smoked paprika powder, garlic powder, chili powder, dried rosemary, thyme, and oregano.
After three or so hours, take the brined chicken out of the bowl and make small but deep cuts on the chicken, so the spices penetrate properly.
Place it in the baking tray and sprinkle salt and black pepper powder, including the insides. Then pour the olive oil, rub it the same way and keep the chicken aside for fifteen minutes.
After the said time, sprinkle and rub vigorously the spices that we prepared while the chicken was brining. Then tie up the chicken, so it does not fall from the rotisserie.
Put the chicken on the rotisserie, place it in a preheated oven, set the temperature at 250 degrees, and set it at the convection mode. The convection mode helps the fats in meat dissolve quicker and make the dish tastier and crispier. Then let the chicken roast for twenty to twenty-five minutes and serve hot with several side dishes and Dingolay Gourmet Hot Sauce for a heavenly flavor.
