Luscious fall-off-the-bone thighs and intensely tasty wings. Delicate little oysters and lip-smacking drumsticks. This my friends, is roast chicken.
There's nothing that feels more homey and comforting than the aroma of a chicken roasting away in the oven on a lazy Sunday. It's reminiscent of families, friends and the simple nature of sharing food (because unless you're a glutton, you can't eat a whole chicken by yourself!).
Try some of these tantalizingly different and simple ideas to tart up your bird and don't forget that nothing completes a good roast better than a kick-ass side dish and some saucy gravy!
