Roast Chicken

I love to make roast chicken. It is simple yet produces a dinner party result that everybody loves. Basically there is no recipe as such. Place the bird on a rack over a roasting dish and place into a preheated oven 260C (500F) for 10 mins. Lower the heat to 180C (350F) and bake for 45mins for each kilogram (or 20 mins per pound) until the bird is brown and oozing delicious juices. Rest for 10 mins. You can use the pan juices to make a simple gravy.

Thanks for commenting on my chili. :-)

A very delicious looking roasted chicken.

You've also added more post to your blog. Ireland looks great as does your bread.

Keep up the blogging!

Ahh...I LOVE roasted chicken! I add a few potatos, carrots and onions to mine. It's one of the few one dish meals I like...not a "casserole" fan..
LOVELY Ireland photos! Let us know if you are going to adopt a new homeland.....and what's up with the smasher in Swiss-land? I heard it had broken down a week or two ago...where does that leave the whole kaboodle?
