This heat is making me super lazy! So here’s another easy & super tasty recipe:
Rosemary & yoghurt roast chicken
a cup of plain yoghurt (you can use low-fat / Bulgarian or Greek)
sprig of fresh rosemary, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
pinch of salt
pinch of freshly ground black pepper
2 tbs lemon juice
half a cup of sauvignon blanc
3 tbs olive oil
Mix all ingredients and marinade one whole chicken (with skin is best!) for about an hour.
Roast in the oven or your grill for an hour and 45mins at a low heat of 150C. The low heat makes the chicken more succulent and if you’re using a grill (like a Big Green Egg or Weber), it imparts a delicious smokey flavour to the chicken. I used a small dutch oven to roast chicken in – for an hour and 20mins and the last half hour I placed chicken directly onto the grill to brown and get crispy.
Delicious – we just kept it simple and had a tomato, basil & feta cheese salad with the chicken.
