Author Notes: This pho roast chicken is my spin on Vietnamese pho ga: it’s juicy and aromatic. This roast chicken has all the flavours you expect in a steaming bowl of pho ga but its simplified into a delicious roast chicken. If you love pho ga, you’ll love this recipe. It’s super simple; you just need to rub the chicken with the seasoned butter and let it roast in the oven, no need to base or turn the chicken. For this roast chicken, I also made mashed potatoes and chicken gravy infused with coriander seeds, star anise, shallots and ginger. Remake With Tea

Serves: 3

  • 1 chicken (3 1/2 – 4 pounds), rinsed, trussed and brought to room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemongrass, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon all spice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 shallots, sliced
  1. Preheat oven to 410 degrees. In a small bowl combine all the ingredients together: butter, olive oil, cilantro, lemongrass, garlic, all spice, salt, black pepper and shallots.
  2. Place the trussed chicken on a roasting pan or Dutch oven; rub the chicken with the seasoned butter. Roast the chicken until brown and the juices run clear, about 1 hour and 15 mins or use an instant thermometer. Remove from the oven and serve!
