Basil Infused Roast Chicken
Preheat oven to 170C
1 Whole Chicken With Skin - Aprox 900 Grams
50 Grams Soft Butter.
1/2 Cup Basil Leaves - Torn
1 Teaspoon Garlic Paste.
Salt & Freshly Pounded Black Peppercorns.
the marination ingredients , apply on the skin of the chicken , under
the skin where possible and inside the cavity.Truss the chicken.
2 carrots and slice 2 onions , add 8-10 cloves whole garlic and 1
tablespoon olive oil. Mix all of this and put in the bottom of a
casserole and place the chicken on top of the veggies . Tightly seal the
casserole ( I used a le Creuset dish with a heavy lid ) and bake 45
minutes. Open once , baste the chicken with its juices and cook another
30 minutes sealed.By now the chicken will be beautifully roasted.You can
if you desire open the lip in the last 10 minutes to get the skin
slightly crackling.Rest the bird for 20 minutes and sit down to a
delicious meal !
