The Secret to a Great Roast Chicken

Check out these tips on how to cook a great roast chicken every time. There's nothing better than a fantastic Sunday roast and these tips will help you bring out the flavour in your chicken.

A great tip for adding bags of taste to your roast chicken is to make a paste with a little olive oil mixed with a crumbled Knorr Chicken Stock Cube. Rub the paste all over the outside of the chicken using your finger tips to massage the paste into the skin. 

Combine this with the traditional process of placing some thyme sprigs and a couple of lemon halves inside the chicken and you’ll have the perfect moist, succulent roast every time. Another great tip is to cook your chicken upside down for the first 30 minutes which helps keep the breast meat beautifully moist and tender. 


Once thoroughly cooked, remove from the oven and allow the chicken to rest for 15 minutes before serving. Remember to use any juices from the rested chicken in your gravy.

For perfect results, try using our award winning Knorr Roast Chicken Gravy. Just mix with water and pour into the roasting pan, adding some extra water drained from your cooked vegetables. Then add some of the meat juices for maximum flavour.
