What`s more comforting than coming home to Sunday roast?
Gathering the family around the table. Good talks, good friends, good food and good wine.

After a little preparation this chicken roast makes itself in the oven so you can enjoy time with loved ones.

First time making a roast? Or are you worried about getting the food just right because you`ve invited some real important people?
Then let me tell you, this recipe is not at all difficult to prepare and comes out perfect every time!
Go ahead – try it.

This recipe serves 4.

What you need:

* 1 big chicken
* 6-8 potatoes, cut in rather big cubes
* 2 red onions, sliced in fours
* 300 g butter
* 6 garlic cloves
* Fresh oregano, marjoram, rosemary or any herb you like
* 4-5 lemons, cut on fours
* Mushrooms, cut in rather thick slices
* Parsnip, cut in thick pieces
* 3 dl white wine
* Salt

What you do:

Cut all the vegetables and place in a big casserole dish. Pour the white wine over it all. Now comes the fun and tricky part: place chunks of butter under the chicken skin without ripping the skin open all too much.
Stuff the chicken with half of the garlic and lemons and insert the fresh herbs between the legs and breast of chicken as shown in the photo.
Rub the chicken with some salt and place on top of the vegetables in the casserole dish.

Place in preheated oven 200° C for about one hour. Turn on the upper grill the last ten minutes if the chicken skin does not look crispy.
