Firstly, choose a chicken at about 600g-1kg, a smaller one should be more tender. clean and dry it with kitchen roll. grind salt and pepper on its body and move them, you can also put some herb in the kitchen‘s belly, thyme, rosemary, garlic, lemon all could be good choices. Put the chicken in the fridge when everything done.

the next day,take out the chicken from fridge 3hours before dinner time. prepare some vegetable as side,you can choose potato,carrot,pumpkin,mushroom or anything you like,but remeber do not use vegetable with too much juice.
