A wonderful moist chicken with lots of flavour and a sauce/gravy that compliments it so well. I used a 1.5k chicken which was cooked to perfection at 175C fan forced in 1.5 hours and I tented in alfoil for nearly an hour while waiting on the roast vegies cooking (was late getting them prepareed and in the oven). For the sauce/gravy as I was unsure it my corningware would be alright on the stove top I added the both and lemon juice to the dish and whisked stiring up all the browned bits and strained into a pot and then added the garlic pulp and whisked and then simmered on the stove top but we like our sauce/gravy on the thicker side so I added some cornflour/cornstarch which had been dissolved in a little water which thickened the sauce/gravy and gave a silken gleam to it as well. A meal thoroughly enjoyed but I may add it did looked rather burnt on the outside due to the marinade but did not have that burnt taste at all. Thank you Ceezie for a great recipe, made for Please Review My Recipe.
