※ Easy Roasted - De Boned Chicken & Vegetables




My butcher stocks locally farmed chicken from Bannockburn** I call ahead and get him to de bone one for me. They seriously are the best chickens I have ever tasted. I am not being paid to say so, it is just my opinion. If you have a chance to get your hands on one, I highly suggest you give them a try, you wont be disappointed.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 whole chicken bones removed
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • vegetables of your choice (I used whole baby carrots unpeeled and red potatoes cut into medium pieces.)
  • whole bulb of garlic
  • A little olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped thyme 
METHOD
  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees fan-forced
  • Place chicken in tray skin side up (I use a heavy based baking tray, its great for evenly distributing heat)
  • Arrange vegetables in tray around chicken.
  • Rub butter onto chicken skin
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper, chopped thyme and add rub in crushed garlic
  • Drizzle olive oil over vegetables. 
  • Bake for 30 minutes, check vegetables and turn if necessary.
  • Then bake another 30 minutes and then season and serve. 
** "Bannockburn Free Range Chickens are bred Free Range according to the strict animal welfare standards of FREPA. They are then processed using the unique method of 'Air Chilling' which does not require the use of any chemicals. This method of processing ensures chickens maintain their healthy pink appearance, their natural texture and their unparalleled flavour. "
