Lemon Garlic Herb Chicken.

Whole chicken( cleaned)-1
Onion small( minced)-1
Garlic cloves( minced)-6
Juice of lemon-1
Soy sauce-1tsp
Red chilli powder-2tsp(+/-)
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh rosemary( chopped)-2tsp
Fresh thyme( chopped)-2tsp
Olive oil-1/4cup

In a medium bowl add minced onion, minced garlic, lemon juice, soy sauce, red chilli powder, chopped rosemary, chopped thyme, olive oil, salt and pepper. Whisk well and check the seasoning. Rub this marinade over the whole chicken until coats well on all sides. Prick the top of the chicken with fork so that the marinade reaches inner meat. Place the whole chicken in a deep dish, pour the excess marinade over the chicken, cover with lid and marinate in refrigerator for 4 hours( I always prefer overnight marinade for added taste). Pre heat oven at 400 F. Remove the marinaded chicken from the refrigerator, reserving the marinade, place whole chicken on a roasting pan and place inside center of oven. Keep basting the chicken with reserved marinade occasionally until the chicken is fully roasted and cooked.( To know if the chicken is done, insert a instant read thermometer into the thickest part of thigh should read 180 F).  Serve hot with mashed potatoes or side of your choice.
