I took beautiful chicken thighs, breast would work as well. I love using chicken thighs because they have more flavor.
First, I browned the chicken thighs in olive oil to seal in all the wonderful spices on the chicken.
Then I took some candied ginger and tamarind, pulverized both in my Vitamix. You could also just chop it really fine if you don’t have a powerful blender.
The tamarind and ginger give the roasted chicken a sweet and spicy flavor.
Next, I roasted the chicken for about 50 minutes, covered in the wonderful, sweet and spicy tamarind ginger sauce.
After 50 minutes, removed the foil, basted the roasted chicken in the tasty glaze and broiled the chicken for about 5 more minutes to crisp up the skin.
If you prefer, you could also remove the skin in step 1. I love my roasted chicken with the skin on but it’s solely up to your personal preference.
This is chicken heaven! The glaze is beyond delicious! It’s sweet, spicy, tangy, and drinkable, yes, it’s that good!
This Roasted Chicken is so good, you’ll never go back to cooking boring chicken again!
