    Easy roast chicken

    This is a relatively fast way to prepare an easy roast chicken dinner that’s full of flavour. Against the norm, I always cook my birds breast-side down as this way you get moist breast meat which has absorbed all the delicious flavours from the bottom of the tray. My mum taught me the ‘soy-sauce rub’ trick, which adds a lovely caramel dimension that is particularly good at this cooler time of year.

    Roast chicken with 40 cloves of garlic

    Don't be put off by the amount of garlic in this recipe. It infuses the chicken with a wonderful, yet not overpowering flavour. You can always discard it after cooking, if you don't want the full garlic experience!
