Quick flat-roasted chicken

Recipe by Donna Hay

Serving size: Serves 4


1.8kg (4lb) chicken
1 lemon, sliced
8 sprigs thyme
6 cloves garlic, unpeeled
Olive oil for brushing
Sea salt and cracked black pepper

Preheat the oven to 200C (400F).

Using kitchen scissors, cut along the backbone of the chicken, then press firmly on the breastbone to flatten it.

Place the chicken in a baking dish lined with non-stick baking paper. Add the lemon, thyme and garlic. Brush with oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Bake for 35-45 minutes or until cooked through.
