OVEN ROASTED BLACK PEPPER CHICKEN

After trying baked chicken in so many different flavours, I started looking for a  recipe on baked black pepper chicken.  Most of the recipes I looked through used ready made black pepper sauce.  I wanted to use freshly ground black pepper in the marinade and was happy I came across this recipe here at Picture the Recipe website.
I followed the marinade ingredients with some modifications and the baked black pepper chicken was awesome serve with blanched French beans and carrots and boiled potatoes.  The chicken meat is succulent and sauce tasty.
My hubby gave a thumbs up and enjoyed it very much.  This is a hassle free birthday dinner for my hubby,lol.  Very economical during time when costs of living is on the rise, hahaha!

Ingredients 
[serves 3]
3 chicken whole legs [bone-in with skin] 
some chopped coriander leaves for garnish
boiled potatoes enough for 3 servings
blanched French beans and carrots enough for 3 servings
Marinade
1 tbsp each of grated ginger and garlic paste
3 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce 
1 tsp salt or according to taste
1 tbsp fresh ground pepper [I used 1 1/2 tablespoon]
1 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp honey [optional]
  1. Rinse and trim any excess fats off the chicken pieces, then make a few slits in the meat to the bone [this helps the marinade flavor not just the skin of the chicken but the inner meat too].
  2. Mix together marinade ingredients.
  3. Add in the chicken pieces and massage it to coat both sides well. Leave to marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes to overnight.  I marinate it overnight.
  4. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees C and arrange the chicken on a baking tray lined with foil.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, turn oven function to grill [top heat] and continue to bake for another 10 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, bring marinade sauce to boil with some water until thick and aromatic.
  7. Remove from oven, garnish with some freshly chopped coriander and serve hot with fresh veggies, rice or mashed potatoes and marinade sauce.
Notes: You can adjust the quantities according to your taste...but don't skimp the black pepper as it is called "Black Pepper" Roasted Chicken.

Kimmy, before I read your post, I thought you used the ready made black pepper sauce. I don't really like those ready made ones because the taste is not that nice (maybe there are other better brands which I don't know). It's great that you made the sauce from scratch. I am also bookmarking this recipe to try!

Hi Phong Hong, me too doesn't like the ready mix pepper sauce that is why it took me so long to prepare the baked black pepper chicken. I like the fragrance and spiciness of the freshly ground black pepper. I used Sarawak black peppercorns.
