Roast Masala Lemon Date Chicken

08 Jun

I made this chicken dish yesterday and turned out very yummy so I thought I’d share the recipe to you all. As usual, when I’m going to bake bone-in chicken, I prefer to steam them first for about 15 minutes to make sure the inside will be at least half cooked before baking it in the oven. Besides it cut down the baking time, plus the meat will stay moist.

Ingredients:
About 2 lbs chicken/beef – I used a whole chicken, cut up in to 4 pieces -skins removed
Juice from a whole lemon
1/4 cup coconut milk
2 tsp roast masala seasoning

(or you can make it your own: chili, garlic, ginger, cloves, black pepper, coriander & vinegar)

3 shallots
3 soaked pitted medjool dates
1 tsp anatto powder
1/2 tsp (or more if you like spicy) chili powder

Directions:
1. Puree shallots & soaked dates in your food processor (I used my Magic Bullet) and mix in with the rest of the ingredients

2. Place the meat in a gallon size zip lock bag, coat evenly with the marinate. Let it sit for about 2 hour or overnight for best taste.

3. Steam the meat for about 15 minutes (If you use boneless meat, you can skip this part and head on to the next one). If you want to skip steaming, make sure to put longer time when baking in the oven.

4. Broil the meat in 400°F for about 20 minutes (turn over once halfway through). If you didn’t steam the meat, bake it for 350°F then change the setting to broil. Time depends on the size of the meat that you use.

Remove from heat and enjoy with your favorite veggie dish.

    That looks really yummy, Jos. I’ve never had roast masala seasoning before. Very smart to steam your chicken first. I always get paranoid when I cook chicken.
