1 Kg Chicken
1 full pod of garlic
2' pc of ginger
3 green chillies
1/2 tsp black pepper powder
2 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tsp dark soya sauce
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 1/2 tsp Rosemary

In a chopper finely chop the ginger, garlic & green chillies.
In a big bowl add black pepper powder, oyster sauce, soya sauce, rosemary & sugar. Add to this the chopped mixture. Add the sesame oil.
Now rub this marinade to the whole chicken. Make sure to rub it below the skin as well inside. Leave it to marinate for 3-4 hours.
In a baking tray bake the chicken for 40 minutes on 200 deg C. Make sure you flip the chicken on the tray every 10 minutes. Now brown the top for 5 minutes on high flame then turn it again and brown the other side. Keep basting the chicken with the drippings whenever you turn the chicken (this will keep the chicken moist). Once chicken is baked. Remove it from the baking tray.
In the same baking tray with the marinade & drippings add the vegetables and bake it for 10 minutes till the vegetable are nicely coated with the marinade & browned.
Serve the baked chicken with vegies & some warm soup and garlic bread.
