Let's Cook: Trini Baked Chicken Recipe

Thanks to the fresh chadon beni, thyme, and rosemary herbs as well as the garlic, ginger, and pepper, this Trinidad roasted chicken has an incredible taste.

Clean, butterfly, and season the chicken before marinating it for at least an overnight or longer to make this Trini baked chicken. Finally, bake for close to an hour without covering in the oven before basting with the drippings.

Choosing a Freshly Ground Seasoning is integral to the flavour!

Here's, a little tip from our Chefs: the longer you leave it to marinate in your fresh seasonings, the better the flavor of the baked chicken. It’s so delicious and tender.
