Lemon and thyme roast chicken with an Algerian twist.

I have played with many versions of this roast chicken. This is so far the perfect blend.
An aromatic twist on a classic roast chicken recipe. Perfect accompanied with cous cous made with a chicken stock and a dash of yummy Harissa or your usual roast potatoes and veg.

1 Chicken
1 lemon
2 Garlic Cloves, crushed
Bunch of Thyme
2 Tablespoons Butter
1/2 Tablespoon Ground Cumin
1/2 Tablespoon Ground Coriander


Preheat oven to 200c. Place chicken in roasting tin.
Mix garlic, butter, salt and spices. Make a pocket between the skin and the flesh of the chicken and rub the butter mix between and on the skin.
Squeeze the lemon juice on the skin and then stuff the chicken with the lemon quarters along with thyme.
Season with plenty of salt and pepper and roast for 80 – 90mins.
