READY IN: 3hrs 10mins




  • Preheat oven to 180C/350°F
  • Line a 9" X 13" glass baking dish with a very large piece of foil, big enough to wrap up the chicken.
  • In a small bowl, mix the parsley, thyme and rosemary.
  • Rinse the chicken and pat the outside dry with paper(kitchen)towels. Place in the lined baking dish.
  • Squeeze the juice from the wedged lemon inside the chicken and then put the lemon wedges inside the chicken. Sprinkle the inside of the chicken with 1/3 of the herbs and salt and pepper.
  • Squeeze the juice from the lemon slices on the chicken and lay the slices on top of it. Dot with butter.
  • Sprinkle with the remaining herbs, the paprika, salt and pepper.
  • Arrange the sliced onion around the chicken.
  • Fold up the sides of the foil on the chicken and roll up the foil like a parcel.
  • Place in the preheated oven for 2 1/2 hours. Do not open the oven until the time is up.
  • Remove the dish from the oven and let sit for about 15-20 minutes before opening the foil.
  • Transfer the chicken to a cutting board. You can then use the juice in the pan to make a gravy.
