Here's a tasty Indian-style twist on herb-roasted chicken. With a mix of fresh and dried herbs and spices, this chicken is well-seasoned but mild enough for the whole family to enjoy. Serve with a big green salad for an easy dinner.
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander seeds, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 (4- to 5-pound) whole chicken, cut into 6 to 8 pieces
  • 1/2 lemon, plus extra lemon for serving
  • 1 tablespoon ghee or butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Put ginger, caraway, garam masala, salt, coriander, cayenne, turmeric and garlic into a small bowl and stir well to combine.

Arrange chicken in a lightly oiled baking pan and season all over with spice mixture. Squeeze lemon over chicken. Drizzle chicken with ghee.

Bake, basting a few times, until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear, 1 to 1 hour and 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
