The motto of “you get what you pay for” is true in many ways and definitely when it comes to good food. This free range chicken weighed 2.4kg and cost 8,47 euro. It’s going to feed us the roast, then a pie, enough for a salad and then stock to freeze plus a good 3 days of chicken broth lunches. Happy days!
The Herb & Butter “stuffing”
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme chopped very finely. Mix with zest of 1 lemon (don’t throw the lemon away) and roughly 50g of butter plus sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mix all together until you have a smooth paste.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Place chicken in a roasting tin breast side down. Cover chicken loosely with baking paper and cook for 1 hour.
