Classic thyme and lemon chicken

hi guys! It has been awhile since i last blog. I figure maybe i shall blog about my recipes since i have been quite passionate in cooking and baking lately. So, enjoy!

Classic Thyme and Lemon Chicken 

1 Large bunch of  fresh thyme 
1 Lemon, halved 
Olive oil

(1) Preheat the oven at 180 degree
(2) Pat the chicken dry
(3) Rub a generous amount of salt,pepper and  fresh thyme on the chicken. 
(4) Put the lemon and some sprigs of fresh thyme into the cavity
* For lemon to release maximum flavour, preboil it in boiling water for about 1 minute and poke it with a fork before inserting it into the cavity. 
(5) Rub a generous amount of olive oil (This is how you get crispy chicken skin!)
(6) Voila now you are done, just roast the chicken for around an hour or until the juices run clear when you        cut between the leg and thigh.

You could roast some vegetables together with the chicken i would suggest carrots, pumpkin, potatoes,       capsicum, onions and garlic (as a whole) toss it with some salt & pepper, olive oil, thyme with a touch of balsamic vinegar and honey.

Have no idea what to do with the left over? Hop on to Roasted Chicken Sandwitch

Have fun cooking. x
