Once you put the chicken in the oven, you didn’t mention the bake time.

Ron Si says:

Pailin I did not make the roasted chicken but I used your gravy recipe for another roast chicken recipe. It was amazing. The coconut milk is a great addition. I only added salt and pepper and the rest of the ingredients were the exact same as you used. Great recipe. Thanks.

emil dekoven says:

Who cares about "other traditional Western-style," side dishes when put up against almost anything you present/prepare. Most Western-styled, holiday food is greasy, underseasoned, and sodden with undeveloped meat flavours. What's to miss?

Grant Martin says:

The butt or Pope's Nose aka the Parsons Nose is my moms favourite part of the chicken..
