Ingredients

  • 1 whole chicken

  • 2-3 onions, peeled and sliced in half

Method

  1. Lay the halved onions in a roasting tin.
  2. Season the chicken with pepper, herbs or lemon stuffed under the skin or inside if you wish.
  3. Balance the chicken upside down, with the onions shoved under the sides to stop it toppling over.
  4. Roast according to it's weight ie 20 minutes per lb/0.5 kg, plus another 20 minutes at 190C.

Handy Hint

If you want crispy skin and a bit of colour, you could try turning the chicken right side up towards the end and whack the heat up for the last 10 minutes.

    Cooking the chicken upside down keeps the breast meat lovely and moist while the thighs cook through.
