Herb and Garlic Roasted Chicken

Herb and garlic roasted chicken is a creation of spices and chicken. My family and friends simply love it. I always serve it up during the festive season or on weekends. It’s a great Friday night treat too, if you have time. I always serve my chicken up with steamed veggies and mashed potatoes. Some gravy is nice too. 

The bird I use is about 1.2 to 1.4 kilos. This serves 4 or 5 people well. You can use a bigger chicken, but you would have to adjust everything accordingly – especially the cooking time. You can also add extra spices if you wish.

Try it and let us know what you think.
