Salted Herby Chicken

This is a very easy dish to make and brilliant whatever the weather , and it was very welcome after constantly eating out in Amsterdam ; very nice to come home and eat homely food.


Chicken mine was a 1.4 kg so cooking was around 1 hour 20 plus resting 

4 teaspoons of natural sea salt

Grind of black pepper

And the rest of the herbs make half a tea soon each.

Mixed herbs 






New potatoes cut in 2 ( enough for how ever many people are having this )

Rapeseed oil,spray 


Preheat the oven to 190c

Blend the salt , black pepper and herbs together 

Place the chicken in an oven roasting dish

Spray with the Rapeseed oil spray 

Sprinkle the salt and herb mixture over the chicken 

Cook chicken for 1 hour 20 minutes but do follow the instructions for the weight of chicken you have.

20 minutes into cooking boil the new potatoes for 10 minutes then drain and place round the chicken , spraying the potatoes with the Rapeseed oil spray.

Checked after the allotted time that everything is cooked .

If you like whilst the chicken is resting you could roast your potatoes further.

Served with vegetables of your choice.
