Oven Roasted chicken 65 - A healthy version

Chicken 65 is a very famous starter in Tamil Nadu.It has originated from a military canteen.The name ,may be because ,it had contained 65 ingredients in the past.Not sure the exact reason.My husband's fav.But I always feel hesistant to do it ,as it contains oil.My frnds ,started doing this in oven and told me it tastes the same.I was not fully convinced,but when I did this,it is 100 % true.There is no difference in taste ,between oil fried and oven roasted.Since we are brushing enough oil, it tastes better with a smoky flavour.My hubby loved it a lot.

Ingredients:
1.chicken                                     -       1 cup
2.Chilli pwdr                               -        1 tbsp
3.Turmeric pwdr                          -        1 /2 tsp
4.Sakthi masala chicken 65 pwdr -        1 tsp
5.G&G paste                                 -        1 tbsp
6.Lemon juice                                -        1 tbsp
7.oil                                               -         1 tbsp
8.Red color                                    -         a pinch

Marination:
* Wash the chicken pieces and pat it dry on a towel for 5 mins.
* Take a mixing bowl and add all the ingredients , and marinate for 1 hr.Make sure the marination is dry.

Baking:
* Pre heat the oven for 450 degrees upto 30 mins.Place the marinated chicken pieces on a aluminium foil covered pan and brush it with oil.

* Cook for 15 mins,take it out and flip it around.Brush with oil again.
* Cook for another 10 mins and turn it to broil mode.
* Now keep an eye on the chicken,if needed,turn it around.
* After few mins, it wud have turned to reddish brown color.

Take it out from the oven and serve after squeezing some lemon juice.

Note:
The reason for using foil is, when chicken starts cooking,it leaves out juices and makes marks on the plate.So its wise to use foil covered trays.

Hi Savitha,
The dish preparation looks very simple and tastes good.

Just for your information, the name Chicken65 is because, the chicken tastes good after 65 days of its birth. So it is always preferrable to cook chicken after the hen has brought up for 65 days..

Savitha Ganesan said...

Hi Naresh,
Thanks for ur information.There are no specific information about chicken 65.Everything is just a story about the root.Any ways I learnt something new today.Thank u.

Hi, Cud u pls clarify if you broil keeping the oven door open? if so, is it fully open or few inches? How long broiling should be done?
Thanks,
KS

Savitha Ramesh said...

The oven door should always be closed at any point of time. In broil mode, the oven heats from the coil situated upside.So it changes colour quickly. That's the reason, we shud keep an eye on the chicken.
