Salt Roasted Chicken

This could be the easiest recipe ever. Just like the shortest sentence in the bible; Jesus wept. It is the shortest sentence; but it meant the most.

I did not quite believe the simplicity of this recipe when the little Teo Chew mentioned it in her blog. And from the first successful try onwards, this has been our go to recipe whenever we have guests or whenever we are just plain lazy for anything else.


A fresh chicken

2 bulbs of garlic

1 tablespoon of salt (I reduced it to 3/4 or as much as you think you would like)


Wash and dry the chicken. Try to get it as dry as possible for the best crispiness!

Salt the chicken, and then stuff single cloves of un-peeled garlic into the cavity. Seal it with a toothpick. And place the chicken breast side up into the oven. I placed it for 180 degrees and for approximately 4o minutes till golden brown.

Ready to serve.

The Little Teo Chew’s blog is a lot more detailed with directions on making a sauce for it if we want; again another brilliant recipe!
