KT COOKS: BAKED MAGNOLIA CHICKEN WITH DRIED ROSEMARY AND FRESH THYME10:56 PM
When my college classmate asked me if she can visit our house, I agreed almost instantaneously. We haven't seen each other for almost a year and it would be nice to catch up once again. She left her office around 3PM so I decided to cook something for dinner. I'm sure she misses home-cooked meals a lot.
I wanted to cook something "Masarap, Masustansya at Kayang-kaya" and I know a chicken dish won't disappoint. I thawed the Magnolia Whole Chicken and started preparing for the dish.
BEST WAY TO THAW CHICKEN:
The best way to safely and quickly thaw chicken is to use a cold water bath. Submerge tightly sealed frozen chicken in a bowl of cold water (ice water is fine). Turn on the tap to slowly run cold water to make the thawing faster.
TIME: You need a total of 2 hours and 10 minutes when cooking this recipe. The prep time includes thawing the chicken, chopping the ingredients and using the spice rub. The inactive time is used to marinate the chicken. The cooking time is for baking the chicken. Be sure to turn the chicken so the skin will be brown and crispy on both sides if you use a pan instead of a rotiserrie. This also ensures that the chicken is cooked well.
This recipe yields at least 7 servings and each serving costs around Php60.
TRIVIA: Did you know that - the SMFI Poultry Business, which uses the brand Magnolia Fresh Chicken, had its beginnings in 1953 when the first B-Meg feedmill in Balintawak began converting by-products of beer production from the Polo Brewery into animal's feeds? In 1972, the company's integrated poultry operations started with its first breeder farm in Cavite. The first chicken processing plant which produced the trade mark Magnolia Fresh Chicken was set up in Muntinlupa in 1973. -SOURCE
LET'S START COOKIN' OUR PRETTY CHICKEN!
It's super easy to prepare, isn't it? You're guaranteed a juicy chicken meat and crispy chicken skin if you follow the steps. When making this recipe, I always choose Magnolia Fresh Chicken because I know that extra care and quality control was exercised in producing the chicken for consumers like me. What I like about SMPFC products is the quality. It's always fool proof to use premium and truly fresh ingredients when preparing food especially for home-cooked meals/dishes.
