Moroccan Spiced Poussin

Having never tried a Poussin before (young chicken), I was intrigued when I saw one half price in my local market, so in my basket it went. Later, I’m now trying to decided how to cook and what seasoning to use, this moroccan spice was definitely a winner for me, not only flavoursome but deliciously succulent cooked in my rotisserie oven from Hotpoint.

1 Poussin (500g)

Stock if roasting in a pan.

Marinade:-

1 level tbsp cumin

1 tsp coriander

1 tsp black peppercorns – crushed

1 level tbsp paprika (I used smoked)

Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon

2 tbsp olive oil

 

  1. Mix everything together in a bowl and spread over poussin, cover and marinate overnight in a fridge or for at least 4-6 hours.
  2. If you have a rotisserie…..excellent….skewer and cook on medium level heat for about 45 mins. (Poussin was 500g). If not , preheat oven to 180deg fan, place in a roasting tin, add some stock, cover with foil and cook for 30 mins, remove foil then cook further for 15 mins.
