Turbo Broiled Chicken

turbo chicken

You’ve tried the Turbo Max Kuno Fried Chicken, so how else may we roast chicken using the turbo broiler? Truth is, the possibilites are endless ( I love saying that). Seriously, that’s the beauty of a turbo broiler. You may pretty much rub anything on the chicken (provided it’s edible, of course), turbo broil it for 45 minutes to an hour and that’s that. This is why a turbo broiler is sometimes referred to as a Bachelor’s Oven.

If you are searching for that Filipino taste, then follow these steps.

You’ll need:

  • 1 whole chicken
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 6-8 calamansi (small lime)
  • 4 stalks of tanglad (lemon grass)
  • melted butter, slice about half an inch, for basting
  • salt and pepper

After giving the chicken a good wash, pat it dry with paper towels including the cavity. Rub the cavity with salt and pepper generously.

Pound the lemon grass mercilessly to bring out its fragrance and stuff it inside the cavity.

marinating the chickenCombine the soy sauce and the calamansi juice and use a brush to marinate it. A good method is to seal it inside a ziploc or a plastic bag and take out as much air as you can so the marinade comes in contact with the poultry. Marinate it overnight. If pressed for time then 5 hours will do.

Roast at 350°F for an hour. Make sure you do not overcook it or it will come out too dry. At 30 minutes, baste it with butter and resume cooking. Baste it again for the second time when you have only 10 minutes to go.

Take out the lemon grass and discard before serving. Collect the chicken drippings to make gravy. You may also use soy sauce and calamansi as your dipping sauce.

chicken thyme and tarragonAs mentioned earlier, you may also use whatever herbs you have in your kitchen arsenal. Simply wash the chicken thoroughly, pat dry with kitchen paper towels, and rub with lemon all over including the cavity. Rub all over with salt and pepper. Stuff the cavity with lemons and rub the chicken with italian herbs and spices that you can find in a grocery store. You may use thyme, tarragon, rosemary, basil, sage, marjoram etc. Or just get that bottle from the spice rack with everything in it. Make sure you marinate it overnight to soak in the flavors.

Pop in the turbo broiler and cook it for 45 minutes to an hour at 350°F- 400°F. Baste it with olive oil halfway during the cooking process. Serve with gravy.

Assuming that you haven’t devoured the entire chicken and you have some leftovers, you might want to make some chicken spread to keep in your ref. Great when you get the munchies and in need of a quick snack.
