  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon fennel powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala powder

*To glaze the chicken before roasting*

  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • Juice of 1/2 lime

*To grease the baking dish*

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • a sprinkling of salt & pepper


  • 1 large potato cut into thick slices
  • 1 whole pod of garlic, halved
  • 10-12 French beans
  • 1 cut cut into pieces

*To Baste the Chicken after it is roasted*

  • 1 tablespoon melted butter


  • Mix all the ingredients mentioned under 'For the marinade' into a bowl. Mix everything together till smooth and lump free
  • Grease an oven safe dish/roasting pan with oil & sprinkle a little salt pepper to cover the surface. Then place a layer of potato slices, about half inch thick. Sprinkle some more salt & pepper over the potato slices
  • Place the chicken over the potato slices and after reserving about 2-3 tablespoons aside, rub the rest of the marinade over it and inside the cavities and under the skin.
  • Stuff the raisins in the cavity. Tie the legs together using a food grade twine or thread
  • To the reserved marinade add the brown sugar and mix well. Apply this on top of the chicken
  • Place the vegetables on either side of the chicken and sprinkle lemon/lime juice over the chicken and the veggies.
  • Cover and let the chicken marinate for at least 30 minutes, or 24 hours in the refrigerator for best results
  • When you are ready to roast it, preheat the oven at 180 degrees C and bake the chicken for about 50 minutes. Then change the oven setting to broil/grill mode for about 4-5 minutes till you see the skin turning into a golden brown
  • Remove from the oven and baste it with some melted butter and some of it's own juices. Serve hot with the vegetables and some potato mash/gravy if desired
