Maple-glazed Roast Chicken

Summertime, well...a rainy summer season, I came across this summery roast chicken recipe in the deliciousmagazine.

I have not been updating this blog for many weeks due to a very busy schedule but that has not stopped me from having nice food!

The dish that I made a couple of weeks ago is one of the six best chicken dishes according to the magazine - Maple-glazed roast chicken served with roasted leeks and carrots.


A roast chicken recipe with minimal ingredients but fundamentally flavourful and very matching mixture of seasonings.

Seasoned Whole Chicken

A whole chicken was cleaned then seasoned with salt and pepper, also two tablespoonfuls of red wine vinegar was poured into the chicken cavity before being put into the oven to roast for an hour.

The end product was a shiny and tasty looking roast chicken. To get the shiny look, after roasting for an hour, the chicken was brushed with a mixture of red wine vinegar, cinnammon, maple syrup and sesame seed then roasted for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, the chicken was brushed again with the same mixture and returned to the oven for a further 10 minutes. The end result is....ta~da~ a very shiny and juicy looking maple-glazed chicken!

with Roasted leeks and carrots

The chicken was rested for about 5 minutes before being cut into smaller pieces for serving. As I cut into the chicken, lovely, fragrant juice was oozing out which showed how juicy the roast chicken was.

Served up
Pieces of maple-glazed roast chicken served with roasted leeks and carrots. The fragrance was nicely over-whelming. The chicken tasted a bag full of flavours from the spicy cinnammon, sweetness of the maple syrup and fragrance of the sesame seeds. The sweet carrots and onion flavoured leeks just complemented the chicken dish very well. A simply delicious roast dinner!
