1 hour 50 minutes (15 minutes)
Serves 6
  • 1.8kg fresh whole chicken
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
  • 125g cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1 bunch baby carrots, rinsed and trimmed
  • 500g Brussels sprouts, halved
  • 250g yellow squash, halved
  1. Remove skin from chicken, by cutting skin down breast side then pulling off over legs and wings. Trim off all visible fat.
  2. To make stuffing, heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a small frying pan. Add onion. Cook, stirring, until softened. Transfer onion to a large bowl. Add breadcrumbs, tomatoes, pine nuts and one teaspoon of each dried herb. Mix well.
  3. Fill chicken cavity with stuffing. Tie drumsticks together with cooking twine and fold under wings. Slash chicken breasts, legs and thighs with a sharp knife. Place in a baking paper-lined roasting pan.
  4. Combine lemon juice and garlic with remaining herbs and oil. Rub mixture all over the chicken.
  5. Bake in a preheated 200C oven (180C fan-forced) for about 1 hour 30 minutes, or until chicken is well browned and cooked through. Stand, covered loosely with foil for 5 minutes.
  6. Boil, steam or microwave carrots, brussel sprouts and squash until tender.
  7. Carve chicken and serve with vegetables.
