Lemon-Curry Roasted Chicken

Curry roasted chicken and potatoes

This recipe should come with a warning…do not make unless you love the color yellow.  Because once you make this paste and rub it all over the chicken, your fingers now look like you smoke several packs a day!  And if you think that is bad, wait until you see your napkins after you are finished eating.  Next time I will use yellow napkins, or rather, I will use the white ones which are now yellow.  They have officially become my curry napkins.

This was delightful recipe came from Fresh Every Day: More Great Recipes from Foster's Market from Sara Foser.   I added some potatoes because I am not about to roast a chicken and waste all those lovely chicken drippings.  They simply scream to have some potatoes tossed and roasted alongside.

And as something different today, rather than posting the recipe, I am going to point you to a video of Sara Foster actually doing the recipe!

From ifood – Lemon-Curry Roasted Chicken.

Yeah.  I saw.  She puts gloves on when she rubs the paste into the chicken.  Duh.

I so frequently have food-stained fingers it's unbelievable. Especially when I bake cakes with food coloring in them. Then I also have a color-stained mouth and teeth from taste testing *ahem the batter so much.

I love the sound of the spice rub though. delicious.

Your chicken looks great (as does all your offerings!). My hands are not usually stained, but when I went for pre-employment fingerprints, the agent said "you have very little print left, you must protect your hands". I told her I cook, can and bake, washing my hands frequently. Who knew?

Food stained hands...to go with all my food stained clothing. Did someone say lemon? And Curry? I'm so there.

June said...

Yum....gloves huh? I love waking myself up during the night with the smell of curry or garlic on my hands. Ha.

Dealing with yellow fingers would be worth it when eating the chicken! It looks and sounds amazing.

If your fingers aren't color stained, how can you possibly prove that you've cooked all these delectable goodies? Hmmm? Maybe you got your pretty pictures from picture books! Even carrots will stain your fingers orange when you grate them.

I'm smiling, Pam. Happens to me all the time. With black cherries, beets and even those fortune cookies I just made!
And polishing silver. I'm starting to get smart and I have a box of rubber gloves nearby now.
Sure looks like a yummy curry dish!

Ah, the color of curry. Goes right up there with the smell of garlic and onions on your hands, doesn't it? All worth it, I feel.

The chicken and potatoes look delicious!

That's the joy of being a "hands-on" cook. This dish sounds wonderful.

good news--i love yellow! it's so cheerful. i don't mind staining my skin, but my favorite shirt? well, that's different story.

I'm smiling as I read this because I know exactly what you're taking about. The stains drive me crazy and aren't easy to remove either, but it's worth it if the dish is yummy.

Lemon + curry + chicken = WONderful. How do you think my hands looked after my beet pickling project. Like I had just slaughtered a cow!
