I usually roast my chicken like everyone else does to be honest, in the oven, basted in butter and seasoned with salt and pepper.  However, today I decided to do it differently, and also because I was ready for my dinner at 10:30am.

I took a very large chicken, and cut it in half down the spine. put the two halves in a roasting tin, rubbed them with extra olive oil & lemon juice, seasoned with sea salt, then added 5 crushed cloves of garlic to them, just thrown on really, and the same with a good thick finger of ginger, then chopped some fresh sage on top and roasted at 220˚c for about 40 minutes.

What you have is a delicious roast chicken without the 2-3 hour cooking time.
