This is a wonderful way to prepare your roast chook using fresh herbs - just plan a day ahead so it has time to marinate. An easy entertaining meal that will please your guests!
Something else. This recipe came out delicious, but I made some major changes. The objective is to marinate the chicken (which I cut up in 4 pieces) in a paste, not a liquid as the recipe stipulates. So forget about the wine and reduce the olive oil to 3 tablespoons. I also added the juice of the lemon I zested. Also I only used 4 cloves of garlic and 1 tablespoon of pepper. I only marinated the chicken 2 hours. - 18 Jul 2008

This was difficult, I found some of the things it talked about I had to do a little research on before I could understand. I personally like learning new things, so didn't mind. The chicken turned out very good, but I have to ask myself if it's worth the time I put into it. I also had a porblem with truely understanding what the marinade was supposed be like. ALthough the chicken turned out fine, and I used the leftovers for a soup recipe I found here (5 star), the smell of it baking was a little overwhelming, unless you like the smell garlic, I wouldn't suggest cooking this when there's a lot of people around. - 18 Jul 2008
