How to make lemon & thyme roast chicken

First ensure you have a secure chopping board and a sharp knife

At this point you can remove the wings and tips ( you can use these for stock )

Gently lift the skin from the muscle using your fingers

At this point you can remove the wishbone ( also use in stock)

Put half the lemon in the chicken

To make the lemon thyme butter strip the leaves from the thyme & chop with the lemon zest, mix with the butter and there you go, simple :)

Place 2/3 of the butter mix under the skin of the chicken & press it down gently, rub the remaining butter over the rest of the chicken

Place the chicken in the tray with the water & the wine and preheat the oven to 175c/gas mark 4.5

Season the chicken and place in the oven for 50 - 60 mins, for best results baste every 20 mins. When the juices run clear it's ready :)

Enjoy !!
