Ingredients
 

  • 1 kg fresh chicken
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, freshly milled

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat the oven to 190C Gas 5.
  • Season the cavity with a generous amount of salt and pepper.
  • Now, here's a good tip for you - pull out a long length of silver foil and scrunch it up into an oblong, about 5cm thick.
  • Place the foil in your roasting tin and sit the chicken on top - this stops the chicken from sticking to the bottom of the roasting tin whilst cooking.
  • Cook the chicken in the oven for about 1½ hours, or until thoroughly cooked.
  • Keep an eye on the chicken and regularly baste it with the juices.
  • If the chicken is browning too quickly, turn down the oven slightly, or cover the breast with a piece of foil.
  • When the chicken is cooked, test by inserting a knife into the thigh, the leg will be juicy, and the juices will be clear. If you see a trace of blood, then cook for a further 10-15 minutes.
  • Once cooked, carefully remove from the oven and leave to rest covered for 30 minutes, at least. This will really add to the succulence of the meat, trust me.
