Roast Chicken is one of the easiest things in the world to make and cooks pretty fast if you use chicken pieces, instead of the whole chicken and even faster is you use boneless pieces.  

For optimal flavor, marinate overnight and then stick it in the oven and within an hour, you have dinner.  The key to really delicious Roast Chicken is to have a fabulous marinade or spice blend.

Advieh Berenj is a traditional Persian Spice Mix, usually used on rice. However, it is so flavorful that I use it on just about anything!

Not only chicken, but this spice blend also works great on vegetables. I have used it with carrots, green beans and potatoes. It’s also delicious on lamb!

Of course, as delicious as this is, you will get sick of it if you eat it too often. Too much of anything is tiring..  Switch up your roast chicken by having different spice blends on hand. Here are some other spice blends you might want to try on your roast chicken recipes.

    Rose petals in a chicken dish? Now that's a first for me! I've had it in teas and sweet treats, but I don't know if I've had it in a savory dish, especially one with chicken. This sounds like an awesome recipe!

    As I said on FB, chicken roast is very tempting. Want to try it, off course with some chili powder 🙂 . For the spice blend, you have dried rose, assuming it is rose petals.

  3. Pavani

    Wow, what a flavorful and aromatic spice blend that is. Using rose petals and cardamom in there sounds absolutely delicious. I want to try it with roasted veggies.
