190.

for approx 1.5 hours. baste once/twice with the juices.

you will know if cooked as if you stick a nife in it the juices should run clear.

i think you should stuff it, mount it, and put it on the mantlepiece

rub with butter& herbs stuff if you fancy it. cover with tin foil. bung in preheated oven (gasmark 5) baste every 20-30 mins, for around 1 hour 30 mins. then remove foil turn up to gm 7 and roast until juices run clear and the legs come away from the body with ease.

nigel slater has a lovely roast chick risotto recipe if you want to make the most of the left overs.

Chuck some par boiled potatoes in to roast in its juices and make proper gravy as well! Forget the calories I think you deserve a treat to get over the cost of it!
