How to make your QUICK ROAST Chicken WITH ROASTED VEG
Set the oven to 200C.
Finely chop (or blitz in a processor) the garlic & herbs and oil.
Chop down the back of the chicken, turn over and flatten out. Score a few lines in the breast / legs.
Add SOME of the herby oil and rub it in. Pop the chicken into the oven for 60 minutes (check it's cooked before serving).
While the chicken is cooking, chop the vegetables and coat in the remaining herby oil. Spread into a roasting tray in a single layer and cook for approximately 40 minutes until slightly charred.
To serve: Bulgar wheat or Cous Cous is a tasty option? Or even some new potatoes would be great.
