Servings: 8


  • 3 1/2 lb chicken
  • 10 cups water
  • 4 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • few black peppercorns
  • 1 tbsp ground turmeric
  • 1 apple
  • sunflower oil to brush



  1. Let’s start with a homemade marinade. Bring water to boil and add salt, honey, a few peppercorns. Mix it well.
  2. Cook it for 5 minutes and let the marinade cool down to room temperature. Add minced garlic and lemon juice.
  3. Place a whole chicken into a large Casserole and pour the marinade over the chicken.
  4. Let the bird soak for a few hours to absorb all spices. We let it rest for 4 hours. The longer you soak it, the tastier it becomes. So if you have time leave it in marinade overnight..
  5. Now it’s time to remove extra moisture with paper towels. Dry it well, so turmeric will stick to it properly. Rub it with turmeric generously. Golden color and unforgettable taste are guaranteed.
  6. Stuff the chicken with apple slices and tie the legs with a cooking string.
  7. Wrap the wingtips with foil to prevent them from burning.
  8. Place the chicken breast side up on the baking rack.
  9. Pre-heat the oven to 350F.
  10. The time of cooking depends on the size of your chicken. In our case it was for 1h and 20 minutes.
  11. Before baking, brush your chicken with sunflower oil to make it glossy.
  12. Now it’s ready. Look at this crispy and juicy beauty. Serve it immediately.
