This weekend whip up the most delicious Sunday roast for Mother’s Day and leave mouths around the table watering at the stupendous display of Tender loving care... or chicken. Get ready for our amazing recipe for a succulent Garlic Herb Butter roast chicken.

• 1 whole Chicken
• Garlic + Butter = Garlic Butter
• Olive oil
• A touch of lemon
• Dry white wine
• Rosemary
• Parsley

Preheat oven.

Rinse and pat dry chicken with paper towel.

Combine olive oil, melted butter, wine (if using) and lemon juice together, rubbing all over the chicken, under the skin and inside the cavity. Season chicken outside and inside with salt, pepper and parsley. Don’t be afraid to use generous amounts!

Rub the minced garlic over the chicken and under the skin. I do this separately as the last step to maximise the garlic taste.

Stuff the garlic head into the chicken cavity along with the rosemary sprigs and the squeezed lemon halve. You can also use sprigs of Thyme or any other herb.

Roast chicken, basting half way through cooking time, until cooked through. Broil until golden and crispy!

Delicious and nutritious, best served with roasted vegetables. Now all that is left to do is simply enjoy.
