I find that roasted chicken dinner is always easier when feeding a large family. There are so many roasted dinner recipes out there, but only a few really work and stands true to the test.
Dinner night is incredibly important to me. What I mean by that is, that’s the time I take to talk to my family and find out what went on during the day.
My family is a chicken lover family. So, chicken dinner is our opt-in for quick easy meals. Sometimes it is hard to find a good chicken dinner recipe, or a good oven roasted chicken recipe where the meat is not dry or overcooked. This curry roasted chicken recipe has been tested over and over again and stands true to the test!
Chicken meals are the easiest to prepare in my opinion. Especially for those who don’t like to cook. A good chicken meal recipe is always juicy, mouthwatering, and leave you wanting more. This simple curry recipe will do that for you.
If you are a fan of curry chicken, you will love this recipe because it includes Jamaican Curry Powder.
Since I’ve lived in the D.C. Maryland, Virginia area, also known as the DMV, I have learned to appreciate both a good Jamaican curry chicken recipe and a Chinese chicken curry recipe. A good Jamaican dish always brings me back home. A good Jamaican dish is good, but when fried plantains are included, I am in heaven! Fried plantains are a staple in Haiti, especially when they are paired with baked chicken, grilled chicken, or chicken stew.
When I am pressed for time, rotisserie chicken meals are what I also opt-in for. Furthermore, in my opinion, making rotisserie chicken at home is healthy. Plus, you can also have rotisserie chicken leftover – which means you do not have to worry about dinner for the next couple days. More to enjoy the next day and throughout the week.
Reasons why this curry roasted chicken recipe works:
There are many reasons why this curry roasted chicken recipe works. For starters, it is very easy to prepare and make. The skin crisps perfectly. Requires little basting. Extremely easy for those who love to host Sunday dinners!
When it comes to roasting, I prefer to go with a whole chicken because it takes little effort. Simply remove the giblets and wash the chicken thoroughly and season to your liking. However, in this case, we will be seasoning the bird with a curry rub which includes Jamaican Curry Powder. And before we move forward, no it is not spicy! I used a mild powder which will make this recipe a roasted mild chicken curry recipe.
I don’t know about you, but nothing screams comfort to me than old-fashioned cooking. However, sometimes these old-fashioned cooking deserves a little twist. Instead of having regular curry chicken which normally would include thighs, breasts, wings, or legs, instead, we are “currying” the entire chicken, or whole chicken.
The next time you are at your local Sam’s Club with the urge to pick up a rotisserie chicken, fight the urge and prepare this delicious, easy, roasted curry chicken to enjoy with fresh vegetables or salads as you discuss the day’s activities with your family. That’s the feeling you’ll get once you prepare this rotisserie chicken recipe.
You can always find a good rotisserie recipe throughout the web; however, finding one that works every time is keen when you want to roast a chicken. And once you find it, you’ll get creative with leftover meals and healthy meals too.
Not to mention, this curry roasted chicken is far more satisfying to make on your own. Some of us are notorious for using the baking bags from Reynolds. I’ll put your mind at ease now and tell you there’s no need for it as the color will not come close to what you will end up with, and the skin will not be as crispy.
You may wonder about stuffing the whole chicken? No need for that as well. Simply tuck the legs in or tie the legs. Beth from Entertaining With Beth has a great blog post on Roast Chicken In A Skillet which includes a video on YouTube on how to properly tuck the legs in. Watch the video as you prepare this healthy curry recipe.

How do you cook a full chicken in the oven?
Cooking any bird in the oven can be intimating. Especially if this is your first time. I always stick to the 350 degrees rule when I am not sure of what to do. However, as I became more comfortable, I venture off the 350 degrees rule. To properly cook a whole bird in the oven without a fuss, below are the basic steps.
- First, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Second, once the oven reaches the temperature above, place the chicken in a roasting pan. Season the chicken. If all fails, salt and pepper always work great.
