This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


It's ても + いい rather than て + もいい. ても (or でも) means "even though" or "even if". This いい is just "good" or "fine".

So ローストしてもいい literally means "even if you roast, it's good". Practically you can think of てもいい simply as "can". The sentence says you can either stir-fry, grill or roast chicken, and they're all good.

し after いい is used to list two or more clauses. See: し grammar question
