Herb-Roasted Chicken and Vegetables

Assalamualaikum wbt..


Recently it's been haze around here in Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore. I'm not sure whether Brunei was affected but all I know is that we really REALLY need to stay indoor and eat healthy food! 

I was thinking to roast those chickens in my freezer and always wanted to add vegetables as a protein option to accompany them.  The herb roasted chicken and vegetables was inspired by Martha Stewart's recipe found in her website. Literally, I don't follow exactly the ingredients as Martha's recipe, I actually invent a new one as I want to use the existing herbs that I have in my kitchen and as far as the vegetables go, I just use whatever I have or whatever looks good at the market. Hubby declared this the best roasted chicken I have ever made and I agree! So dust off that oven and get healthy food started!


Ingredients:

1 whole chicken, rinsed and patted dry ( I used half chicken, cut into 8 pieces)
Coarse salt 
4 large potatoes cut into halved
3 cloves of garlic
Half small bowl of lemon juice
2 clutch of tomatoes cut into halved
A bundle of asparagus (I loves Asparagus!)
A pinch of Italian Herbs blend
A pinch of Rosemary Herbs
2 teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil








What to do:

In a large bowl, whisk together the potatoes, tomatoes, garlic, onion and asparagus with olive oil and season with salt. Then, preheat oven to  250 degrees. Season chicken with salt, rosemary, italian herbs and lemon juice. Scattered vegetables around the chicken. Pour another teaspoon of virgin olive oil into pan and roast chicken and vegetables about 1 and 1/2 hour. 






My herb-roasted chicken and vegetable is ready..Tadaa!

Overall Rating: 8.5 /10. Hubby was certainly impressed. There a few other recipes I'm eyeing to re-create from Martha's site since I already have an OVEN now. yeay! This dish was an interesting twist to the usual Malay-Italian fare. There was still strong Malay taste when it came to the dish. So there you have it, my perfect lazy way of cooking a one dish for Saturday dinner:)

Saving the best for the last-Me!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. B's nature of work leaves me with no choice but to be independent. His work schedule knows no weekends and public holiday. But a kaki jalan I am by nature and nurture,what if it's only me and Aulia'? bring it on! Nak keluar jugak! I thought  it was impossible at first but naaa, practice makes perfect, I am so used to it already, you'll be surprised of what I can do with only one hand. Haha The skills develop naturally. From folding stroller and do groceries shopping while pushing the cart and her stroller? I have done all that. But there are time I do need hands from strangers, and kudos to Malaysians, they're helpful. And I think this is the perfect bonding time because Aulia' is with her baby sitter during the weekdays. Her new doll with blinking eyes and annoying sound..  So there are times, I'd love to doll up, but now I have a plus one! How? I doll her up as well! luckily she's a daughter, dear God thanks

The Hi5 Concert in Malaysia

Assalamualaikum wbt.. My little girl was so giddy about the Hi5 concert in Malaysia since we bought the tickets couple of months ago. She keep saying she's gonna dance along with the Hi5 songs with her friends in front of the stage. We bought the concert tickets via online at TicketPro.com and the concert is held for one week until before the xmas.  One ticket for Aulia' at the Mosh Pit area costs about RM 283 while another two tickets for hubby and myself costs about RM 113 per person. We came a bit earlier than the show at KLPAC after having our lunch at home and we visited the lobby area and bought  Hi5 souvenir for Aulia'. The show started at 2.30 p.m. and as soon as the kids heard the entrance announcement, they all are on their feet ready to rock the concert. Chatterbox or known as "Chats" first appearance and the kids been screaming all the time when it all started including my little one. We can see her excitedly jumping around from our se

Carnaval Churrascaria

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. Last week we had an invitation from our boss for a departmental dinner.This is the third time I join in with the whole Renewable Energy team for official  makan-makan . So we had this dinner session at a weird place named Carnaval Churrascaria, (I still had a problem of pronouncing this restaurant's name) somewhere near to the Atria Mall in Damansara Jaya SS22, Petaling Jaya. Carnaval Churasscaria is one such Brazilian Restaurant, decked out with Brazilian national colour of yellow and green. It is a brazillian style where all the meats are grilled and the waiter come to each table with knives and skewered meat and slice it for us.. For non-MEAT lovers, you may opt for the non-meety buffet..they actually have rice, pasta, potatoes, salads and some seafood. For those who loves garlic bread, you should try their garlic bread which mixed with cheese..Two thumbs up!! yummy!
