For all of you familiar with Mimi's Sticky Chicken, the technique in this recipe will ring a bell. It is a great way to roast a yummy bird when you have to be away from home for a while. This is my rendition.

  1. Combine all seasoning ingredients into a paste or zap together in a little blender.
  2. Wash chicken and pat dry.
  3. Rub inside and out with this paste and put in a ziploc bag to marinate overnight (mine marinated a total of about 15 hours).
  4. Preheat oven to 125 Centrigrade (250 fahrenheit).
  5. Place chicken in pan, breast side down and roast (not exactly the word!) for 5 hours.
  6. If you like, turn breast side up to crisp skin for last 45 minutes.
  7. I didn't baste this at all as I was away from home all the time it was cooking.
  8. It was juicy and tender!
