Hearty, delicious and satisfying are just a few words to describe that perfectly roasted chicken. If you're someone that usually buys a store bought chicken, why not try to roast your own? We think simple is best, with a hot oven, fresh salt and pepper and lashing of butter.

Follow the simple recipe below and prepare to wow your family!

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 40 mins


1Heat oven to 450°F.

2Rinse the chicken and dry it with paper towels inside and out.

3Truss the bird. This involves tying the legs together with string, keeping them close to the body. This helps keep moisture in the bird and helps it cook evenly.

4Rub roughly 1 tablespoon of salt all over the chicken in an even coat. This will keep the moisture in the bird for a more tender flesh. Season with pepper.

5Place the chicken roasting dish and roast for around 50 to 60 minutes. Baste the chicken with its juices and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes.

6Serve the chicken with lashings of butter and mustard on the side. Enjoy!
