DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat your oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6.
  • Rinse your chicken well, inside and out and dry thoroughly with a paper towel.
  • Stuff the cavity with the quartered lime, onion and the garlic.
  • Rub the olive oil all over the chicken and season with salt and pepper.
  • Place the chicken in a roasting tin and place in the middle of your preheated oven.
  • Roasting time depends on size of chicken.
  • Roast for 20 mins per lb plus an extra 20 minutes for the whole chicken (example: 4 lb chicken: 4x20+20=1hr40mins).
  • Using the juices from the roasting tin, baste the chicken every 30 mins to stop it from drying out.
  • While the chicken is roasting mix the lime juice, honey and parika in a small bowl.
  • 30 mins before your chicken will be done take it out of the oven and brush with the lime& honey glaze.
  • Return to the oven to finish roasting, at the end of the roasting time make sure all juices run clear by inserting a skewer into the thickest part of the thigh.
