Serve with salad, broccoli and brown rice for an even more nutritional meal.
Yes, curry and chicken are a delicious duo. Curry adds a faint flavor to the roast, as do the red pepper flakes. This mix is also a great rub for turkey. Your dollar goes further with a roast. They take so little time to prep. While one is cooking you can make a salad and rice...and maybe even get a load o flaundry in the washer. (Save the bones and juices to make a broth). The presentation of a mouth-watering browned roast is always impressive. It looks good and it smells good!

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, loosely chopped (or 1 tsp. dried)
1 tsp. sea salt
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oilPlace all in a bowl and mix well. Take a handful, rub it all over the chicken, then stuff the cavity with the remainder. Place chicken in oven.
