I knew I was going to roast a chicken for my 2 younger kids' family celebration, but I wasn't sure about a Western style recipe (sage/butter? thyme?). Searching for a nice size roaster wasn't that easy (most were too small at the supermarket) until I went to the wholesale club. Problem was I had to buy 2 breasty birds. Hmm, okay fine I'll freeze one. Then I remembered Atty. Sassy's whole roast chicken. A recipe for twins.
I followed her recipe exactly, only substituting scallions for leeks,and marinating only a day and a half instead of two.
after being sealed in marinade(garlic,dark soy, lemon juice, pepper, chili sauce, steak sauce, brown sugar) and turning several times in ziploc bags...
stuffing with scallions,
and a lemon half,
and baking about 2 and a half hours...
Thanks Sassy for generously posting this recipe. The fragrance of lemon and soy permeated the chicken, and its aroma lingered and spiked our guests' appetites.
