Prepare the roasted chicken
Preheat oven to 180ºC.

Prepare the spiced butter mix for the chicken: Mix all the ingredients for the spiced butter mix together in a small glass bowl.

Using a kitchen basting brush, brush the chicken with the spiced butter mix. Place on a lined roasting tray. Place the halved lemons into the cavity.

Roast for guided time below, or until the juices run clear when the thigh is pierced. Brush the spiced butter mix on throughout cooking.

Honey Mustard Sauce
Heat olive oil. Sauté chopped garlic cloves and chopped small onion until soft and translucent. Add in the chicken stock, water, Dijon mustard, whole grain mustard, honey and cream. Allow to simmer until thickens to coat the back of a spoon. Set aside to serve.

Spiced Chickpeas
Drain and rinse the canned chickpeas, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Toss with smoked paprika and olive oil. Sauté lightly in non-stick frying pan until slightly toasted.

McCain sides
Heat the McCain Creamed Spinach and McCain Mashed Butternut as per pack instructions. Season and keep warm.

Prepare McCain Crispers according to instructions on pack deep fry, air-fry, or oven bake.

Serve the roast chicken with honey mustard sauce, McCain Creamed Spinach, McCain Potato Crispers along with the McCain Mashed Butternut, spiced chickpeas and toasted nuts for an extra garnish.

Remove chicken from the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking, to allow it to come to room temperature.

Baste the chicken once or twice through cooking, with the pan juices.

Alternatively roast a leg of lamb for a special occasion.
