1. Rub the chicken with oil  

For perfectly golden skin, rub the chicken all over with oil and season generously. This helps it crisp up nicely in the oven.

2. Roast it on a bed of veggies

For a great-tasting chook, roast it with onions, celery and garlic. The chicken takes on their flavours as it cooks.
