Ingredients

whole chicken

720 g, (Buy 1.6kg)

olive oil

3 tsp

sea salt

1 tsp

pepper

½ tsp, cracked, black

fresh rosemary

1 tbs, leaves, chopped

baby potato

red capsicum

1 large, cut into 3cm pieces

lemon(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Place the chicken, breast-side down, on a clean work surface. Use kitchen scissors to cut down both sides of the backbone and discard. Trim any excess fat around the neck and legs. Place the chicken, breast-side up, in a large baking dish and push down to flatten.
  2. Combine the oil and rosemary with salt and freshly ground black pepper in a bowl. Rub mixture over the chicken to coat. Place the potato, capsicum, lemon and garlic around the chicken in the baking dish. Lightly spray chicken and vegetables with oil.
  3. Bake the chicken for 45 minutes or until golden and the juices run clean when chicken is pierced with a skewer in the thickest part. Cover with foil. Set aside for 5 minutes to rest before serving.
