DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan. Using kitchen scissors or poultry shears, cut down either side of the backbones of chickens and discard. Open out chickens and flatten, pressing with the heel of your hand.
  • Rub chicken skin with cut lemon; reserve lemons. Combine oil, garlic, oregano, paprika, cayenne and salt, and rub into skin. Arrange chickens skin side up in a large baking dish and add reserved lemons.
  • Roast for 45 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through. Set aside to rest for 10 minutes, then carve into pieces. Drizzle with reserved pan juices to serve.
