A buttery rub and fragrant stuffing is all you need to roast your chicken to crispy, succulent perfection. Tying the legs together gives a wonderful visual finish that also helps to retain moisture and flavour, making a simple roast recipe into a show-stopper. See method
of the reference intake
No roasting tin with a rack? Cook on thinly sliced onions or potatoes to crisp up the underside.
To help retain moisture and flavour, and to give a neat finish, tie the legs together, hold cotton kitchen string under the legs and tailbone, pull up and cross the ends over to bring the legs together. Wind around a few times and tie a knot.
To make the roast dairy-free, simply swap the butter for 1 tbsp olive oil.
