Baked Whole Chicken (Firinda Kizarmis Butun Tavuk)

1 whole chicken
4 potatoes, chopped or sliced
1 carrot, sliced or 6 baby carrots
½ tsp salt (for potatoes and carrots)
1 tsp salt (for chicken)
½ lemon juice
2 tbsp yoghurt
1 tsp paprika
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp thyme
1 tbsp oil

Place the chopped or sliced potatoes and carrots in a Pyrex dish, spread the salt and mix them. You might take the chicken’s skin off if you wish. I have taken the skin out. Then, spread salt all over the chicken with your hands. Then, mix the lemon juice, yoghurt, paprika, cumin, thyme and oil. Apply it all over the chicken with a brush.
Preheat the oven to 400 F (200C) and cook for about 60 minutes until it is golden brown.
ENJOY

The=is chicken looks sooo juicy and yummy. I was wondering how you got so much sauce? did you cook the chicken covered or uncovered?

I cooked it uncovered and did not add anything liquid. All this sauce comes from the chicken itself. Chicken releases its juice while cooking. And it really is yummy!
