The purpose of this recipe is to demonstrate that anyone can prepare a roast chicken faster than buying it. All it takes is around five minutes preparation providing you have your ingredients ready, throw it in the oven, relax for ninety minutes or so and there you have it, dinner is served. Quicker than buying takeout and you have a scrumptious roast dinner with vegetables for four people. Best of all, there’s very little washing up and it’s cheap! Another easy chicken recipe.
Turn chicken upside down when resting, this will let the juices run to the breasts making it juicier. (cover with foil and towels to keep the heat in)
Use a meat thermometer if unsure about cooking time, 75ºC or 165ºF is ideal. Insert in the inner thigh without touching the bone. If your chicken is larger it will take a little longer.
If you don't have a thermometer, pick up your chicken and let the juices run out , they should be clear, if pink cook a little longer.
Taking the chicken out of the fridge 30 minutes prior to roasting will give you better results.
