Let’s prepare the Mini roast chicken

  1. Fire up that oven! Get it to a cozy 375°F (190°C).
  2. Give your chicken a quick spa treatment – a nice rinse and then pat dry.
  3. Next, give it a massage with olive oil, salt, pepper, thyme, and that fragrant garlic.
  4. Pop the lemon halves into the chicken’s little tummy.
  5. Let your birdie nest in a roasting tray, and pour that tasty chicken broth around it.
  6. Let it roast and get all golden for about an hour. Tip: The juices should run clear, not pink!
  7. Once out, let it take a short nap (10 mins) before you slice and dice.

Handy Hints

  1. Want that skin ultra-crisp? Ensure it’s dry before the oil massage.
  2. Keep it moist! Spoon over those juices every now and then.
  3. Safety first! Use a meat thermometer; aim for a safe 165°F (74°C).

Plating It Up

Serve this beauty with some greens or maybe even a zingy salad. Those roasting juices? Don’t waste them; whip up a quick gravy. Mashed spuds or roasted veggies also make a fab companion for our star roast. Bon appétit!
