It's so sad. I think the chicken is probably ruined

Spatchcock it and stick it under the grill if the grill still works.

Thanks for the tip. Fingers crossed you've rescued my saturday

Good luck. Don't put the temp up too high or you'll get a charred outside and uncooked middle.

It was lush! Thanks!
Luckily I'd made a cauli cheese that could go under the grill too, but we had to scuttle the roast potatoes.

Ah the potatoes are a galling loss, but I'm glad the chicken and cauliflower cheese worked out.
