Place the dish in the pre heated oven. Keep both the rod of the oven on at the beginning.

After 15 or 20 minutes, turn off the top rod.

Bake for more 10 minutes. Then turn the chicken upside down to cook evenly.

Bake for 15 minutes more.

When the chicken is almost done, turn on the upper rod again to give a nice charred colour to the chicken.

When the top side gets charred, turn the chicken again to char the bottom side also.

Remove from oven when both sides of the chicken is roasted properly. It will take approximately 1 hour to roast the chicken completely.
