This is a simple and tasty way to season chicken, and makes a great dish to serve for Sunday Dinner!!
INGREDIENTS1 Whole Medium-Large Roasting Chicken 3 Tablespoons of French Mustard 1 Tablespoon of Dried Thyme A little Salt and Black Pepper(The mustard can contain salt, so if on a low salt diet, lightly season..Add more black pepper rather than salt!) 3 Crushed Cloves of Garlic Handful of Basil, chopped A Tablespoon of oil
Mix all the seasonings and oil together, and set aside. Clean and gut the chicken(The best way to do this is by using a teaspoon to scoop the innards from the bird.), washing it in lemon juice and water. Leave to drain, and when this is done, massage the seasoning over the bird and also in the inner cavity, and under the breast and pour some so that it can reach the thigh meat. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees, and then after 10 minutes, and on a baking tray place the chicken inside. Roast for 15 minutes and then turn down to 180 degrees, and leave to cook for around 35 minutes. Turn the bird halfway through cooking time, leaving it breast side down, and then turn on the other side. Serve with roast potatoes, mixed vegetables, chicharrones(Roasted Pork Fat), and gravy(See recipes in Seasonings and Sauces).
