This feast is a Mother’s Day treat she’ll always remember - but don’t tell her how easy it is… oh, and it’ll feed 4!

What you'll need
  • 1.5kg chicken
  • 450g carrots, chopped

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • 250ml chicken stock

Cooking directions
Step 1

Make space in the oven and heat it to 180C.

Step 2

Cover a roasting tin with the vegetables, leaving room for the chicken.

Step 3

Season the chicken with salt and pepper, and stuff it with the lemon halves.

Step 4

Place the chicken on the vegetables, smothering with butter, and drizzling everything with oil. Place in the oven for 1 hour, 25 minutes.

Step 5

Remove the chicken from the roasting tin, and let it rest for approximately 10 minutes. Pour all roasting juice into a saucepan.

Step 6

Over a low heat, stir in the flour and stock until you have a thick sauce. Simmer this for two minutes whilst stirring. Strain the mixture into another pan, and simmer for a further two minutes.

Step 7

Et voila - serve up to one happy mother!
