Roast Chicken

Who doesn’t love a roast?!

Chicken thighs/drumsticks with skin.
Cayenne pepper
Crushed chilli flakes
Himalayan salt
Hot piri piri seasoning from Sainsbury’s (yummy!)
Small white onion
No added salt/reduced salt stock cube. If you only have the regular kind, OMIT the above Himalayan salt.

Mix the spices together or spinkle on to the chicken legs. roll them about until evenly coated, place into a small roasting tin. Finely slice 1/2 – 3/4 of the onion, or the whole lot if you love onions. Chuck on top of chicken with about half a stock cube crushed on top. Cover roasting tin with foil and pop into the oven for 20 mins on Gas mark 6, after 10 mins, turn the chicken and add water to create sone sauce, not a lot, just about 1cm deep in the tin maximum. Roast for 10 minutes, turn and roast again just to crispen the skin. The onions should be soft and the sauce should be nice and brown. Not thick because it’s not a gravy.
You could mix the stock cube with a little water and then add it but I do it this way because sometimes, depending on how much chicken you use, you may find you have enough liquid from the chicken fat and stuff. Don’t add any oil or fat to the chicken, all the fat you need is in the skin. And this should be made too often because of the fat content.

Serve with salsa, roast veg, pan fried veg, steamed veg or whatever you fancy and enjoy!
