a gaggle of ingredients - mostly spices
the marinade that G was kind enough to make
the roasted bird
and some spiced, roasted taters
the whole kit and caboodle
You don't need to own Jamie's Great Britain to make this recipe - Jamie has made it available online. The gravy I made from the pan juices was heavenly, but next time I may give Jamie's version a try! I didn't need to flake off as many burnt bits as Jamie did, perhaps my oven is not as hot as his.
I would highly recommend this recipe - roasting a chicken is something that is super easy (but impressive) and quite comforting. While it does take some time, most of it is "idle supervision", that is, sitting around and reading a magazine while the bird is in the oven. Did anyone else's Mum ever tell them NEVER to leave the house with the oven on???
