Just like Bakes, Macaroni Pie, Cornmeal Cou-Cou and Fish Cakes, among other things, each country in the region has its own version of baked chicken. What differentiates one country's baked chicken from the other is mainly the seasoning. Some people use a signature herb mixture/paste known as green seasoning, while others only use dry spice rubs. Some may use a combination of both and yet another group may add liquid seasoning sauces to the mix to make a marinade that would result in the chicken creating its own sauce. All of this is a matter of personal preference. Many households prefer their baked chicken to be cooked dry and then opt to make a gravy on the side. Personally I like my baked chicken marinated overnight with green seasoning and other ingredients such as regular and dark soy sauce, oyster sauce and Worcestershire sauce. When cooked, the baked chicken is juicy and creates it own sauce.
