Simpol Herb Roast Chicken

Hello friends! I haven’t been posting as much on this blog. I was a little busy with some online opportunities that I can not simply pass up.

Anyway, I cooked this dish last January, following Chef Tatung Sarthou’s recipe with slight modification. The chicken I bought was bigger, and I’m missing some herbs like basil and oregano to marinate the chicken.


Chicken, salt, cracked black pepper, garlic, rosemary, lemon, parsley, onion, soy sauce, potatoes, and oil.


  • Rub chicken with salt and pepper, including the inner cavity.
  • Combine 4 tablespoon Canola oil, 1 garlic head peeled and pounded into a paste, 2 tablespoon rosemary, 1 lemon juice, 4 tablespoon soy sauce, and 1 a handful of chopped parsley.
  • Mix the ingredients into a paste and massage into the chicken, including the inner cavity.
  • Stuff chicken with 1 onion and lemon peel. Add some sliced potatoes and marinate them with the paste mixtures.
  • Set aside for 30 minutes to an hour, or overnight in the chiller.
  • Preheat the oven to 190 degrees and roast chicken in a pan with a roasting rack for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Brush with oil every 30 minutes. Rest for 15 minutes before serving.
