I try to use the oven to make salt baked chicken. The meat is smooth, tender and fragrant. It’s very delicious. It’s no less than the traditional method of salt baked chicken. It’s easier to operate, and novices in the kitchen can do it easily.


Half a chicken
4 g salt
A little onion
Foam a little Shajiang


Step 1
Ginger, peeled and chopped

Step 2
Wash the chicken and control the water content. Apply salt and Shajiang on both sides. The amount should be a little larger. Apply to all places. Put the chicken in a sealed bag and refrigerate for more than 5 hours

Step 3
Take out the pickled chicken, rinse the Shajiang granules on the surface with clean water, dry thoroughly, or dry with kitchen paper, slice the onion

Step 4
Place the onion in a heat-resistant container at the bottom. Place the chicken in a fully dried oven. Cover with onion. Place in a 220 degree oven

Step 5
Bake for 15 minutes, then turn over and bake for 10 minutes. Finally, turn over and bake again for 5 minutes

Step 6
Students who don't like Shajiang or can't buy Shajiang can only marinate it with salt, which is also very delicious

Step 7
Marinate for at least 5 hours. The longer the time, the better the taste

Step 8
The baked chicken juice has a salty taste, which is absorbed by the onion below. It's very delicious. If you don't like onion, you can use potato instead

Step 9
The specific baking time is adjusted according to the size of the chicken, and the whole chicken is recommended to be extended to 45 minutes
