Moist Garlic Roasted Chicken

Chicken wrapped in greaseproof paper to trap all the wonderful juices - keeps beautifully moist! A very easy self-roasted meal for any occasion when served hot or cold.

Recipe provided by:



1 (4 pound) whole chicken

Salt and pepper to taste

1 large lemon, sliced

6 cloves garlic, sliced

6 sprigs thyme

Preparation method

1. Preheat oven to 160 C.

2. Place a large sheet of greaseproof or baking paper into the middle of a roasting tray. It should be large enough to wrap around the chicken plus plenty of extra for folding over.

3. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, stuff with half of the lemon slices, and place breast side up in the middle of the paper. Sprinkle garlic slices, and thyme sprigs evenly over the chicken. Lay the remaining lemon slices over the breast. Fold the paper over the chicken forming a loose parcel.

4. Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until the juices when a skewer is inserted in the thigh are no longer pink.
