A special roast for a special occasion or just a special roast for an ordinary Sunday :) Enjoy :)
whole chicken(around 1.5kg)
50 ml rapeseed oil
handful of fresh thyme, chopped
6 garlic cloves,crushed
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1.Preheat the oven to 180C/160Fan/Gas4
2. Mix oil with lemon juice, crushed garlic, thyme, salt and pepper and cover chicken with this mixture.
3.Place the chicken on a baking tray and bake for 2 hours and 15 - 30 minutes.To check that it’s cooked, push a
skewer through the thickest part of the thigh.
The juices will run clear when ready.I like to keep mine in the oven for a little bit longer so the meat is literally melting...
