FANTASTIC ROASTED CHICKEN

Din categoria Stakes

Ingrediente: 900g/2lb chicken, preferably organic 1 large lemon 8 slices prosciutto or Parma ham, thinly sliced 1-2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped 2 good handfuls of fresh thyme, leaves picked and finely chopped salt and freshly ground black pepper 115g/4oz or ½ pack softened butter 1kg/2lb 3oz potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks 1 large celeriac, peeled

Mod de preparare: Preheat oven and an appropriately sized roasting tray to 220c/425f/Gas 7 1 Wash your chicken inside and out, and pay dry with kitchen paper. Using your fingers, part the breast skin from the breast meat. 2 It's important to try to push your hand gently down the breast, being careful not to rip the skin. 3 With a peeler, remove and chop the fragrant yellow skin of the lemon, keeping the peeled lemon to one side. 4 Tear up your prosciutto and add to a bowl with the lemon skin, garlic and thyme. 5 Season and scrunch it all into the butter. Push this into the space you have made between the meat and skin - rub and massage any that's leftover in and around the bird. 6 Slash the thigh meat to allow the heat to penetrate a little more, which makes it taste better. Halve the peeled lemon and push it into the cavity. Put your chicken in the hot tray and roast in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. 7 While the chicken is cooking, parboil the potatoes in salted water for 10 minutes and drain. Cut the celeriac into irregular chunks around the same size as the potatoes. 8 Remove the chicken from the oven, by which time the tasty butter will have melted, flavoured and cooked out of the chicken into the bottom of the tray, awaiting your potatoes and celeriac. 9 Put a fork into the cavity of the chicken and lift it out of the tray for 20 seconds while you toss and coat the vegetables in the butter. Put the chicken back on top of the vegetables and cook for around 40 minutes. 10 Stand for 10 minutes. Once the meat and vegetables have been removed, a light gravy can be made in the tray on the hob with stock, a splash of wine, a little simmering and some scraping.
