olive oil
1 medium chicken
1 lemon
1/2 onion
a few sprigs of thyme
a few sprigs of sage
salt & pepper


2 tablespoons sunflower oil
3 medium onions, peeled & chopped
200 g (7 oz) coarse breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon chopped sage
1 tablespoon chopped thyme
1 tablespoon chopped chives
100 ml (3 1/2 fl oz) olive oil


2 tablespoons plain flour
600 ml (1 pint) chicken stock
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
a pinch of sugar

Preheat the oven to 220⁰C/430⁰F/Gas 7.

Rub olive oil over the chicken, then squeeze over some lemon juice and put the remaining lemon inside the cavity with the onion and herbs.

Season to taste

Put the chicken in a roasting tin and roast for 20 minutes per 500 g (1lb), plus 20 minutes extra.

To make the stuffing, heat the sunflower oil and saute the onions for 5-6 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and season. Spoon into a greased dish and bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden and crisp.

Put the cooked chicken on a plate and keep warm. Add flour to the juices in the tin, heat on the hob and stir, then blend in the stock, Worcestershire sauce and sugar. Heat through and sieve into a jug
