I have to say that Flavours of Baku is one of my go to website for Azerbaijani food and this is a lovely dish to make.

Roasted Hen with Potatoes and Apples takes a little forethought as you need to marinate the hen in onions overnight, but the rest of the dish is super simple. It is quite a hearty meal with half a hen each, so we had plenty leftover for the kids the next day.

Just don’t forget to by cherry tomatoes on the vine like I did, as the final effect is not quite the same.

 

 

Steps

1
Done

Place the hen with the breast side up and using a sharp knife, cut the hen in half by slicing down the middle of the breastbone to separate the rib cage, then cutting all the way through.

2
Done

Slice the onion, put it into a bowl, and add 1/2 tsp of salt. Massage the salt into the onion and squeeze it with your hands until the onion gets soft and a little juice comes out.

3
Done

Season the hen with salt and pepper to your taste. Place half of the sliced onion into a container, then place the hen skin side down. Cover with the remainder of the onion. Marinade overnight in the fridge.

4
Done

Remove the hen from the fridge for one hour before roasting, and remove all onion from the hen. Cut the potatoes and apple into large pieces. (We used two apples.)

5
Done

Pour the melted butter over the roasting pan, then place the hen (skin side up), potatoes, and apples in a roasting pan and rub them all over to coat with the sour cream (or mayonnaise.)

6
Done

Preheat the oven to 200C. Add 1 cup of chicken broth or water to the pan and roast until the hen and the potatoes are cooked and golden brown. Baste the hen and turn the potatoes and apples over every now and again.

7
Done

When the hen is almost cooked, place some tomatoes into the roasting pan as well.

8
Done

Serve whilst hot.
