    Summer Roast Chicken
    From the sw calendar June page.

    Syns per serving: 1 Syn on Red & Extra Easy plan
    Serves 6

    Ingredients:
    A small handful each of fresh thyme & parsley, finely chopped
    3 level tbsp very low fat margarine
    zest and juice of 1 lemon
    3 1/2lb/1.5kg chicken
    2 garlic bulbs, unpeeled, cut in half
    1 small orange, skin left on, thinly sliced
    fry light
    salt & pepper

    Method:
    Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.gas mark 6. Mix half of the thyme & parsley with the margarine, lemon zest & juice. Lift the skin from the nect of the chicken & spread the herb mixture over the chicken & under the skin. Replace the skin, secure with a cocktail stick & place the chicken in a roasting tin. Place the garlic & most of the orange slices in the back cavity of the chicken. Spray the chicken with frylight, scatter over the remaining herbs & orange slices & season.
    Roast the chicken for 1 1/4 hours, basting a few times (cover with foil halfway through if the skin is getting too browned). To test if the chicken is cooked, pierce the thickest part of the leg with a skewer, if cooked the juices will run clear. Remove the skin from the chicken, carve & serve with steamed vegetables.
