Ingredients

Serves: 4 people

  • 2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 pinch Black Pepper
  • 3 cloves Garlic

  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Ground Cumin

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.
