Zhoug marinated roast chicken

A beautiful, bronzed roast chicken, marinated in zhoug, orange juice and honey, with most delicious sweet, sticky dark juices.

3 tablespoons @belazu_co zhoug paste⁠

2 tablespoons olive oil⁠

2 tablespoons runny honey (I used @beehype_honey)⁠

Juice from 1 large orange⁠

Juice from 1/2 lemon⁠

2 sliced oranges⁠ (skin on)⁠

Large pinch of sea salt flakes⁠

Pour the marinade over the chicken, add the orange slices, swish it all around, then leave in the fridge for a few hours (ideally overnight).⁠

Roast according to the instructions, basting occasionally.⁠ I stuff mine with an onion the other half of the lemon.⁠

Add a tablespoon of zhoug to some Greek yoghurt, to accompany the chicken.⁠

Eat with orange slices and juices from the chicken.

Absolutely delicious. ⁠

  1. not enuf info her. had to noodle where/how to roast the orange slices… separately together? more info needed.


    1. These are the oranges that have been cooked with the chicken, which will be a little caramelised during cooking. Good luck!
