I've got a chicken I would like to roast today. We made a dinner yesterday, so fancy something different today, I'm thinking of having it with flatbreads/salad etc.... any ideas how to cook it or with what spices to get a tandoori type flavour?? Thank you!

Spatchcock it (look on youtube if unsure how). Flattened, it will cook quicker and be easier to marinade. Do you have yoghurt and the spices or paste for tandoori? Otherwise a peri peri flavouring or Moroccan style.

Thank you @Elouera yes I think I've most of those in my cupboard! I'll see what I can cobble up but all of them look great just what I was after.

Not a recipe but wanted to share something I have been doing. I've been buying larger whole chickens e.g. last nights was 3.2kg from the butcher and am now getting 2 meals out of them. Also, I have started to do something else when I am roasting. When chicken is in the oven, I get a big pot and chuck in an onion, garlic, a leek if going any herbs knocking around e.g. parsley, bay leaves, oregano, black pepper corns and a clove. Once the chicken is carved up I put the carcass (minus skin) in the pot. Cover with 2 litres of water and bring to boil, then simmer for up to 2-3 hours. OMG I have the nicest broth or stock to use up after this. I have just frozen some and last time I made it into a chicken soup with left overs and chucked in some noodles at the end. I will never thrown a chicken carcass away again.
