Do you ever buy a roast chicken from the supermarket? You know, just for an easy meal or to shred for a salad or a soup or the like?
Because I have a way to cook my own - and it's easier, quicker, cheaper, healthier and yummier than buying one pre-cooked. I cook chicken this way to make soups and salads, or to go in rolls or on pizzas. For the three of us, it will often do two meals.
Easy Roast Chicken
1 whole chicken
Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celcius.
Cut the chicken right down the backbone, then place it in a lined baking dish and press down to flatten it.
Sprinkle with thyme.
Cut the lemon into rounds and lay across the top of the chicken.
Cook in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes.
How simple is that?
