Switch up your next roast with our peri peri smothered roast chicken 😍
We love buying roasts because there are many ways to create meals from the leftovers (if there's any left 😆) not to mention, they are also cheaper by the kilo 👍🏽
For a couple, we would get about 6 serves from a 2.3kg roast chicken. First meal would be served with a side of roast veg 🥔 The leftover chicken can be used for wraps, sandwiches or added to salads for lunches 👌🏽 and saves you from buying food to-go! 🙌🏽
Peri Peri Smothered Roast Chicken
Dinner / Meal Prep
We know with every meal created it will taste great, thanks to Just Flavour! 🤗You can make this too! Check out the recipe.
2.3kg whole chicken
2 tbsp Just Flavour Peri Peri (1 mild, 1 spicy)
stuffing of your choice (we blitzed together a few slices of crust with Just Flavour Lemon Herb, squeeze of 1/2 a lemon and garlic clove. Keep the lemon skin to hold in the stuffing.)
Pre-heat oven to 200°c. Place chicken in a baking dish and pat dry.
Use gloves to stuff the chicken with your desired stuffing inside the cavity. Use half a lemon left over from the stuffing to close off the cavity (skin side out). Tie the legs with kitchen string.
Drizzle with oil. Sprinkle Just Flavour Peri Peri over the skin.
Use gloves to rub the whole chicken until the seasoning has absorbed and the chicken is evenly coated.
Loosely cover with foil, prevent the foil from touching the skin. Roast for 20 - 30 minutes per 1kg until the internal temperature reaches 75°c and the juices run clear. Ours took about 2 hours to cook. Remove foil for the last 20 minutes to achieve crispy and golden skin.
Serve with your choice of sides! We added the potatoes after the first 30 minutes, enjoy ✌🏽
