  • 4 oregano sprigs
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges
  • 2 red onions, cut into wedges
  • 2 tsp dried oregano

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 150°C. Pat the chicken cavity dry with paper towel. Place the garlic, oregano sprigs, half the lemon wedges and one-quarter of the onion in the cavity. Tie the legs together with kitchen string. Place in a roasting pan.

STEP 2

Combine the dried oregano, paprika, sugar and oil in a small bowl. Season. Spread all over the chicken. Place the remaining onion around the chicken. Pour the stock around the chicken. Roast for 2 1/4 hours.

STEP 3

Place the beans, tomatoes and olives around the chicken. Roast for a further 15 mins or until the juices run clear when tested in the thickest part of the thigh. Cover with foil and set aside for 10 mins to rest.

STEP 4

Serve with remaining lemon wedges and extra oregano sprigs.
