Peri Roast

This past sunday I had a few friends staying over for the weekend so I made us some of Peri Roast Chicken with sweet potatoes and Mixed veg and Gravy. It came out much better than I expected, as It was my first time making roast on my own haha!  Below is the recipe hope u like it! X

 

Ingredients:
– Whole Chicken
– Sweet Potatoes x4
– Red Onions x2
– Garlic x2
– Mixed Vegetables
– Peri Salt
– Black Pepper
– Lemon
– Thyme
– Rosemary
Methods:
Wash the Chicken with lemon and water then pat dry. Chop onions in half and peel garlic for the stuffing.Once the stuffing has been added, Mix oil, Teaspoon of honey with Thyme Rosemary and Oregano together and rub onto chicken skin. Sprinkle Some Peri Salt and Black pepper then add to pan.
 

To get the skin crisp in a hot oiled pan add your chicken and fry the skin breifly. Set to one side and grap your potatoes, wash and slice thinly/quarterly how ever you like it, sprinkle salt, black pepper and add mixed veg into baking tray then add your chicken from the pan on top.

This is how it should look. Pop into oven at 200 degrees for 45-60 minutes. Once this time is up turn the oven off and leave to sit in the oven for 20 minutes then cook for another 45 minutes until it’s crispy and well cooked.

Once its done remove from oven leave to cool for 15mins then serve! Enjoy!
*PS i was way to hungry that I forgot to take a picture of how it looked on a plate LOL but you probs get the idea haha!  Xx

  • So after you turn the oven off, and let it sit for 20 mins, you turn the oven back on at 200degrees for another 45 mins?

    I was wondering the same thing. Also ive noticed you pat dry your meats. What difference does this do. Many thanks Kezia

      hi natasha it just allows the seasoning to sink in properly as the water might interfere with the flavours.
