DIRECTIONS

  • Rub chicken with seasoning.
  • Prick chicken all over with fork.
  • Stuff lemon in cavity and secure legs with kitchen string.
  • Refrigerate for about 3-4 hours.
  • Longer the better.
  • Take out of fridge and roast breast-side up in a 220 degree centigrade oven.
  • For fan ovens, it's 200 degrees.
  • Roast for about 45- 1 hour, depending on size and doneness required, eg for crispier skin, a longer time.
  • For a fan oven, you may want to turn the chicken 180 degrees (I do that).
  • You may also wish to subtitute Rosemary with Oregano.
