Roasted Soda-Can Chicken
1 whole chicken, skin off
1 packet of Lahori Charga Masala spice blend
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
Juice of 2 lemons, put lemon halves aside
1 12oz Sprite can
1 zucchini, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 green pepper, diced
2 tbsp olive oil
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Remove the giblets and rinse chicken inside and out with water.
Mix together the packet of spices, garlic, ginger and lemon juice to create the marinade. Rub the marinade over the entire chicken, including the cavity. Make sure to get it into all the crevices of the chicken. Push the neck of the chicken to the side and stuff the opening with lemon halves. Stuff the cavity with the remaining lemon halves. Cover and refrigerate for 12 hours. Or, if you want to make it later on in the week, you can stick it into a Ziploc freezer bag and freeze it until you want to make it.After the chicken has marinated, place the open soda can on a heat-proof glass dish. Remove the lemons from the cavity and set the chicken upright on the can, inserting it into the cavity of the chicken.
