Whenever you  can’t make a decision on what to eat for dinner, it’s always chicken. Almost always, at least. Today we bring you a recipe for you to rediscover chicken; Dump the easy chicken breasts and take home a whole chicken which we’ll roast and season with a very special type of seasoning.

All you need for this recipe is of course a broiler or any other way you’d rather roast a chicken; We obviously recommend roasting outside with some charcoal or even wood since it gives it a certain flavor that can’t be replicated, but it’s not necessary at all.

Let’s make some roasted chicken!

Roasted Whole Chicken


  • Whole chicken, no innards
  • 4 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Coarse salt

How to make:

  1. Wipe down chicken with a rag. Set on a baking tray and lightly grease the whole surface of the chicken.
  2. Preheat oven.
  3. In a small bowl, combine olive oil with dried oregano and red pepper. Mix well and set aside.
  4. Introduce chicken into the oven and set a timer to 15 minutes.
  5. Chop garlic and parsley. Sautée for about minutes on high heat.
  6. Transfer garlic and parsley to the small bowl with olive oil.
  7. Add red wine vinegar and salt to taste.
  8. After 15 minutes, take the chicken out and season generously with your seasoning until you have nothing left. At this point, salt more if desired.
  9. Roast chicken for about 10 to 20 more minutes (depending on your oven) until it starts turning dark brown on the surface.
  10. Serve.

There you have it. And just so you know, this kind of seasoning is usually called chimichurri, although you won’t find something as tasty as this homemade recipe using fresh ingredients. You can use it on practically any kind of meat, so it’s a good recipe to keep handy, specially for those who love spicy seasoning.
