Family Roast Chook

Whole Family Roast Chicken
Garlic Bread
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Splash of olive oil
1 dessertspoon basil, finely chopped
1 dessertspoon garlic, finely chopped
Salt & pepper to season 

Stuff the cavity of the chicken with all of the garlic bread. Cut a pocket on the inside of the chicken near the rear. Cross the chicken legs & push a leg through the incision to secure. Mix together the butter, oil, basil, garlic, salt & pepper & brush over the top of the chicken. Put the chicken in an oven bag, & place on a baking tray. Roast in a preheated oven at 200° for approx 1 hour. Open the oven bag & continue cooking at 280° for 10 mins or until the skin is crispy. Remove chicken from the oven bag & place on a warmed plate to rest.  Pour juices into a saucepan & thicken with your choice of Gravox or a cornflour & water mix. Serve chicken with gourmet roast vegies, gravy & garlic bread stuffing.
