Roast chicken is probably one of the most popular Sunday roast dishes, and for good reason. Chicken is easy to prepare, flavourful and an excellent source of high-quality protein.
Preparation time: 10 minutes•
Cooking time: 100 minutes
Serves: 4 people
1. Preheat the oven to 230°C/gas mark 8.
2. Mix together the garlic, honey, olive oil, vinegar, cinnamon, cumin and a pinch of salt and pepper in a small bowl to make a paste, then rub the paste evenly over the chicken.
3. Place the chicken in a roasting tray and roast in the oven for 20 minutes, then reduce the heat to 190°C/gas mark 5 and cook for 1 hour 20 minutes, until the chicken is fully cooked.
4. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes before carving.
*Serve the chicken with roast vegetables.
Tip: Pierce the skin of the chicken to allow the glaze to flavour the meat.
