You know when you just crave something out of the blue, well it happened to me yesterday and it was whole roast chicken. I was eager to try out my brand spanking new Le Creusett dish which I got from my sister for my birthday recently.
I decided to spend the Sunday in my house to get my house in order, as I have been gallivanting the last two weeks and an unorganised house makes me feel uneasy. They say a tidy house is a tidy mind and that's so true! The weather outside was magnificent though and I must say I was tempted to jump in my car and go to the beach, especially as I have a new bikini I want to show off before summer is over! But there will be other gorgeous days.
I thought that I could organise my house while the chicken is cooking in the oven. Perfs! The fragrant aroma made my home smell like a hearty home!
I nipped off to the shop to buy the chicken and some veggies, this is how I made my Easy Sunday Whole Roast Chicken:
1 x Whole chicken
8 x garlic cloves
Garlic & Herb stock
Salt & black pepper
I washed the chicken and placed in the dish. I peeled and cut up all the veggies and placed it around the chicken. I kept the garlic cloves in their pockets. I sprinkled all the spices on the chicken and veggies and drizzled with olive oil . Then I poured over the garlic & herb stock. I popped it in the preheated 180 C oven and cooked for 1 hour. This will vary depending on your oven.
Simple, easy an delicious. Give it a try any day of the week! Please let me know how if you try the recipe out, how it goes or tell me about recent recipes you have tried.
