Tips on how to cook a great roast chicken
Check out these tips on how to cook a great roast chicken every time. There's nothing better than a fantastic Sunday roast and these tips will help you bring out the flavour in your chicken.
A great tip for adding flavour to your roast chicken is to make a paste with a little olive oil mixed with a tablespoon of Continental Chicken Stock Powder. Rub the paste all over the outside of the chicken using your finger tips to massage the paste into the skin.
Combine this with the traditional process of placing some thyme sprigs and a couple of lemon halves inside the chicken and you’ll have the perfect moist, succulent roast every time. Another great tip is to cook your chicken upside down for the first 30 minutes which helps keep the breast meat beautifully moist and tender.
Once thoroughly cooked, remove from the oven and allow the chicken to rest for 15 minutes before serving. Remember to use any juices from the rested chicken in your gravy.
Then add some of the meat juices for maximum flavour.
