Sambal Oelek Roasted Chicken

roasted chicken sambal oelek recipe

This is a quick post. S and I are about to go out to spend an afternoon in the city. We are going to hear Karen Armstrong speak as part of the City Arts & Lecture series this evening and before that we'll catch the Avedon exhibition in SFMoma.

Last night we made sambal oelek roasted chicken. This is my too lazy too cook dish. Remember the sambal oelek? I simply mix it with oil and rub it all over the chicken pieces and under the skin and toss them in the oven. Use 3 tablespoons of sambal oelek and two tablespoons of chili oil or vegetable oil for about four large pieces of chicken legs and roast at 400°F for about 30 minutes. Smaller pieces may be done earlier so watch the oven. While waiting, I boiled some small potatoes for my cilantro yogurt dressing. Quick braise shredded cabbage and carrot, and we have a meal.

Looks delicious, as usual.

L - i pretty much use approximations - throw 1 tbsp mayo, 1 cup yogurt, 1 tsp garlic powder, half tsp onion powder and 2 handfuls of cilantro in a blender. Add a bit of milk if you want and you can use spinach instead of cilantro too! This makes a lot - you can halve it.

J - thank you :)
