Method

 
Preheat oven to 200C. Place chicken in a deep roasting pan. Make sure it isn’t too big or all the liquid will evaporate.

Mix together verjuice, chicken stock, herbs, garlic and mustard, and season with salt and pepper.

Pour mixture over chicken and into the cavity.

Roast chicken uncovered for about 1.5 hours until cooked through.

Cook's tips:

Verjuice is the juice of unfermented green grapes. Find it in store on the shelves with the vinegar.  If you can find shallots or baby onions, peel away the tough outer skin and toss them into the roasting pan with the chicken.  Use white wine sweetened with a teaspoon or two of sugar in place of the verjuice.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
