This roast chicken is truly wonderful. The cavity is stuffed with lemon and lime wedges, and sprigs of fresh thyme and rosemary No fat or oil is used as the natural fat renders from under the skin. To get that lovely crisp skin I squeeze runny honey and a good dollop of Worcestershire sauce over before roasting. We have this for our Sunday roast. I hope you will try and enjoy.
