Zola’s Simple Roast Chicken

One of South Africa’s most beloved chefs, Zola Nene, recently put a spicy spin on this traditional dish and shared a detailed video on her Instagram, encouraging her followers to give her simple roast chicken recipe a try. Zola mentioned how roast chicken is a weekly staple in her house and using the LG NeoChef cuts down her cooking time so she can make meals even faster, especially on busy weekdays.

Zola’s recipe calls for baby potatoes, peppers, onion, lemon, garlic, rosemary, oregano and thyme for the veggie part of the dish. And a whole chicken, chicken spice, Garam masala spice, lemon, olive oil and salt and pepper for the main event – the roast chicken.

After prepping the veggies in a baking dish, Zola created a special spicy sauce for the chicken and massaged it in evenly. She then placed the chicken on top of the veggies, breast side down to start. Here’s where the LG NeoChef came in handy – the microwave oven has a specific setting for roast chicken. Zola clicked the Roast & Bake button, turned the dial to number 5 (for roast chicken), added the weight of her chicken and waited for the NeoChef to work its magic.

Thanks to Smart Inverter technology, this powerful machine is able to cook a variety of dishes that conventional microwaves can’t. Beyond simply reheating or defrosting food, the NeoChef combines precise temperature control and cooking power to bake, grill and roast almost anything.

The smart microwave will also instruct you when it’s time to turn over your food for even and thorough cooking. Zola flipped the chicken to breast side up at the half-way mark, covering it with foil to lock the moisture in after removing it from her NeoChef. She explained that leaving chicken to rest for 10 minutes with foil on top ensures a juicy roast.

Cleaning up after cooking with the NeoChef is a dream. An EasyClean interior coating means that just a few wipes with a damp cloth will do the trick. Plus, the anti-bacterial coating also eliminates 99.99% of harmful bacteria from adhering to the microwave, keeping your family safe and healthy.
