A roasted chicken done with Indian spices to add a tandoori twist. This is also a one pot meal as vegetables were roasted along with the chicken. —Mitanti Ghosh Sarkar

"Message the chicken with butter" and "bust it with the liquid from the roasting tray"?

Sounds kinda passive aggressive, if you ask me. ;-)
