It is the first cold snap of the season today and what better to warm the cockles than a roast chicken? This is a very simple roast, sprinkled with cinnamon and thyme.
1/2 roast chicken
2 teaspoons cinnamon
5-6 springs of thyme
salt and pepper to taste.
Do not wash the chicken before you use it.
Place the chicken in a roasting tin on a rack to drain the fat as it roasts and add the thyme and cinnamon plus seasoning.
Roast for 3/4 hour.
I added some carrots to the roasting tin to add colour to the dish.
