Roasted Chicken Thigh

What would my family do without Chicken??? I am a staunch non-vegetarian with more inclination towards Pork and Beef while my hubby is devoted to Mutton. The tragedy is that due to health reason my hubby is advised to abstain Red Meat. Isn't mutton under red mean you ask??? I have the same doubt, but my hubby says it may be red but less fatty so the distinction...am not convinced but whatever...

Good news is, mutton is way to expensive here in Hyderabad and Beef & Pork totally out of the question for regular feasting...that's when Chicken comes to the rescue. Btw we consider Fish part of the veggies so....it really doesn't count as a non-vegetarian dish.


Thankfully, chicken is a very versatile protein and so it's easy to tweak around, As much as i love chicken curries, i love dry dishes even more, and most of all i love baked/roasted chicken a lotttttttttttttttttttttt...yea that's how much i love it :)

Today's recipe is one of those quick fix recipe for days when you want something nice but your energy level low to do the stand and stir ordeal. This recipe serves two.

Ingredients:
2 - Chicken thigh with skin
2 Tbsp - Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tbsp - Chilli Vinegar
1/4 Tsp - Garlic Salt
2 Pinches - Salt
1 Tbsp - Chinese Rice Wine

The marinate will hold good for upto 4 pieces of chicken thigh. 


Method:
  • Dump all the ingredients in a bowl with a tight lid
  • Prick the chicken thigh all over using a fork, dunk it into the marinade, give it a good shake so that thighs are well coated with the marinade, leave it be for atleast 30 minutes 
  • Preheat oven at 200 degree C and grease a baking tray with some oil or ghee
  • Place the chicken thighs in the center and bake it for 1 hour, flipping the thighs to the other side halfway through
It'll be beautifully baked by that time, crisp on the outside but juicy and warm inside... You can pair it with a nice coleslaw of your choice and it's a complete meal. Enjoy!
