Cooking French food should be enjoyable and accessible for all...
GASCON ROAST CHICKEN
1.5 kg oven ready chicken
2 garlic bulbs
Salt and pepper to season
Add 1.5cms depth water to a roasting tin
Cut the lemons and garlic in half crossways
Rub the lemon over the chicken followed by the garlic
Squeeze the remaining lemon and garlic juice into the water
Season with salt and pepper
Cook in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 1.5 hours
The water slows down the cooking process making the flesh succulent with the flavour of garlic.
