Crispy Chicken Roast
My favorite chicken roast is grilled but some people love to have it in oil through a deep-fry process. The chicken roast recipe needs yogurt, ginger garlic paste, and the spices, including dry and green spices. It is the marination that takes time from 3 to 4 hours, but if you are in a hurry you can leave it for 1 hour. Cooks also keep it in the refrigerator for whole night that makes it so soft. Apply aliz olive oil before grilling or add it to all spices. The right heat of the coals is very important just like the temperature of the oven when you oven grill it.
