  • Rinse chicken inside and out. Drain well and pat dry with paper towels. Place chicken on a roasting pan, tempered glass or ceramic.
  • In a food processor or with a mortar and pestle, grind the garlic cloves and the peppercorns, making a paste. Place in a small bowl and incorporate the Madeira. Marinate, covered, in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Bring to room temperature before baking.

    Completely delicious recipe for moist and tender chicken. I basted the chicken a few times during the baking.

    This produced a very moist and tender chicken. The madeira marinade really helped to assure the chicken was deeply golden during roasting, and it was positively yummy. I am so glad I tried this recipe! Thanks for posting, Mami Janine. Made for ZWT5.
