Come and meet Australia’s leading Organic Food Cook


Anni Brownjohn  founded of The Right Food Group in 1999 with a dream to bring to the world her passion for clean, healthy, low allergy food. It has now grown to be Australia's leading developer and manufacture of organic condiments and sauces.  OZGANICS brand is available nationally and internationally.

She will be in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from 27th November to the 5th December 2012  and will be giving demonstrations at Jaya Grocer, Empire Shopping Gallery from the 27th of November to the 5th of December,  2012. Food lovers should not miss this chance to meet her in person and learn more about the organic movement.  You will not only get to enjoy a three course lunch cooked with pure organic ingredients but will also recive RM100 worth of OZGANICS products for your holiday cooking.  I can’t wait to attend her demos and learn some healthy and wonderful holiday dishes from her. 



Since the holiday is near I will like to share with you a Thanksgiving recipe. For those who are not a big fan of turkey, you might consider making roast chicken instead.

QPC Roast Chicken

Picture taken by my iPhone 4S because 
we can't wait to taste it. LOL!


Ingredient:
1 chicken aprrox. 1.5 kg
1 bulb garlic minced
1 medium onion, finely chopped
olive oil, enough to oil the whole chicken

Mix all the following to prepare the rub.
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 lemon
1 tsp chopped thyme,
1 tsp chopped rosemary
1 tsp sage

Method:

Preheat oven at 200 degree C or 400 degrees F.  Take your chicken out of the fridge 30 minutes before it goes into the oven. Rub minced garlic and finely chopped underneath the skin. Next rub the mixture of spices underneath skin and on the skin. Drizzle the chicken with olive oil, rubbing it all over the chicken.Prick the lemon all over, using the tip of a sharp knife and pop into the microwave for about 30 secs to bring out its flavor. Put the lemon inside the chicken’s cavity and truss the chicken. Place the chicken  in the roasting tray and put it into the preheated oven. Roast for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until internal temperature of thickest part of the chicken is 74 degrees C or 165 degrees F. Baste the chicken halfway through cooking. When cooked, take the tray out of the oven and transfer the chicken to a board to rest for 15 minutes. Cover it with a layer of tinfoil and a tea towel and put aside before carving the chicken. 

Serve the chicken either with your favorite gravy or roasted vegetables. That is entirely up to you.

I served it with butter garlic spinach and braised carrots, potatoes and swede. My Quay Lo suggested that I place the roast chicken breast on top of the swede so that the skin will stay crispy. Good point!

    1. You are welcome. It was time to roast a chicken because I was craving for it. I am not very found of store bought roast chicken because I find it rather dry and not flavorful enough.

    1. Thanks Phong Hong. You know when it was roasting in the oven, I was already soaking up all the aroma that fills the house. By the time, I took it out of the oven and let it rest. I just want to get to it and not bother about setting up my camera to take photos. LOL!

  10. Can't go wrong with roast chicken. Looks delicious! I love all the accompaniments with it too!
    I am so not into the healthy lifestyle altho I play lots of tennis and that's only because I love the game. The stuff I cook because I love to eat those kinds of food. Maybe it's a good idea to learn a few healthy things. Actually, I'm kinda hooked on quinoa ever since Shannon made me do a healthy guestpost for her. Well, that's ONE healthy thing I know! :)
