Simple Yummy Roast Chicken

There are a few things that I do quite well. Unfortunately since my MS has progressed I have had to say goodbye to a lot of my little hobbies. 
Luckily so I'm told, I can still cook. 
I've got all sorts of roast recipes, but this one is probably the most simple and the one that when I cook for others they always ask how I do it so I thought it's about time I shared!


You'll need:
The Chicken (duh)
Olive Oil
1-2 Garlic Cloves (to taste)
A lemon
An Onion

Whilst your oven is preheating (I usually have mine at gas mark 7 but everyone's oven is different) chop the garlic into chunks and insert them into the chicken, stabbing a little hole with a knife and pushing a chunk in. I usually use about 1 and 1/2 cloves and put the rest of the chunks up the chook's bum. 

Cut an onion in half and place it inside the chicken, and do the same with half a lemon so they're both side by side. Squeeze the left over half of the lemon all over the chicken.

Shower the whole chicken in olive oil. This is where most of my oil goes each week! Then season with salt and pepper before sprinkling the oregano all over it. 


Shove it in the oven for an hour, baste it, and then depending on the size of the chicken put it in again for another 20-40 mins.
