The best-roasted chicken ever! I am so glad that I decided to give this recipe a try because I never would have tasted how awesome this is. With a very minimal set of ingredients, you will have the perfect meal! I usually serve this with mashed potatoes or steamed rice. By the way, make sure to baste the chicken with the drippings because it’s the best part of this recipe. Feel free to add more ingredients. If you want, you can add chilli or more pepper to give the chicken an extra kick!
