Preheat oven to gas mark 7 or 200 degrees

Clean chicken by rinsing with cold water and removing any excess hairs.


In the mortar and pestle, and some dried onions, Pinch of salt, Chilli flakes, All purpose/Everyday seasoning, Peppercorn, 2 minced garlic cloves, 3 chicken stock cubes, Olive Oil and grind


Next you want to chop fresh Parsley, fresh Thyme and Rosemary and add it to the mortar

Add some lemon zest also to the mortar and continue to grind it in order to combine all of the ingredients


Poke some holes in your washed chicken (you can wash your chicken using apple cider vinegar and lemon) so the marinade can seep into the flesh

Rub the marinade into the chicken, ensuring you cover each area as much as possible. For better coverage, press the marinade into the skin and under the skin


Drizzle half a lemon over your chicken and finish off by adding some lemon zest

With the other half of the lemon, place it inside of your chicken


Place the chicken in the oven on 200 degrees for 1hour 45minutes


To dress the chicken, add some Chimichurri all over it and finish off with some herbs and juice of a lemon
