Garlic, Lemon and Herb Roasted Chicken Pieces with Vichy Carrots


Chicken is a big favourite of mine, for some extra spice add a chopped chilli or two!

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 60 minutes


Serves: 4 people

  • 1 tbsp SuperValu Dried Mixed Herbs
  • 5 cloves SuperValu Garlic
  • 2 - SuperValu Lemon
    juiced and rind
  • 3 tbsp SuperValu Olive Oil
  • 1 - SuperValu Quality Irish large chicken
    cut in pieces (breast, drunsticks and thighs)
  • 0 - SuperValu Whole Black Peppercorns
Vichy Carrots
  • 450 g Carrots
  • 1 tbsp Caster Sugar
  • 300 ml Chicken Stock Cube
    or water, warmed
  • 25 g SuperValu Butter
  • 0 - SuperValu Whole Black Peppercorns


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4.
  2. Combine the lemon juice, olive oil, herbs, seasoning, and garlic.
  3. Sprinkle the chicken pieces with salt and pepper and brush the lemon mixture.
  4. Place the chicken on a roasting pan and place in the oven for approximately 40 - 50 minutes, turning halfway through.
  5. When the chicken is thoroughly cooked, juices will run clear when pierced with a fork.
  6. Meanwhile place the carrots in a small pan with the butter, caster sugar and enough stock or water to just cover the carrots.
  7. Bring to the boil, then cook over a moderate to high heat for about 12 minutes until the carrots are tender and all of the liquid has evaporated. Shake the pan occasionally to prevent sticking.
  8. Serve the chicken with the vichy carrots and some garden salad.

    This chicken was great! I mixed all of the spices, olive oil and lemmon juice and rubbed it under the skin of the chicken and then over the top of the skin and poured the remainder in the cavity. I put about 3/4 cup water in the bottom of the pan and baked the chicken upsidedown with the breasts in the juices. I covered the whole thing in foil and in 2 hours the flavorful meat was falling off the bones. My company raved and everyone ate way too much. Served with baked apples, green beans and fresh bread. Delicious!
