DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350 deg F/180 deg Celsius Use your largest oven roaster -- like the one in the photo, which comes with most ovens.
  • Clean the chicken of all extra fat and skin flaps. Season inside with salt. If using, put two thick slices of lime or lemon, an onion quarter and 1 - 2 garlic cloves inside the cavity.
  • Place the chicken in the roasting pan.
  • Cut the ends off the bell peppers, remove seeds and ribs, sprinkle in a little salt and pepper, and put a peeled tomato in each cavity.
  • Add the cleaned cauliflower, broccoli, zucchini and cucumber slices (or mushrooms) to the pan.
  • Add the potatoes and the onion quarters. Sprinkle the chopped garlic over everything, and also use some salt, lightly, over the vegetables and chicken.
  • For the dressing, mix the olive oil, lemon juice, honey, mustard and some black pepper in a bowl, and whisk well to mix.
  • Drizzle this over the contents of the roasting tin, and rub some of it all over the chicken. Make sure the potatoes get their share of dressing.
  • Sprinkle the rosemary over the chicken.
  • Bake the lot for about 1 1/2 hours. Everything should be done after that, BUT you might have to tent a piece of foil over the roaster halfway through, to prevent bits burning. Take this off again just before it's done, so the chicken and potatoes will brown nicely.
  • If you make this for 2 people as I do, you will have leftovers, especially of the chicken. It's very handy to use for another dish.
