  • Marinate the chicken.
    Rinse and pat the chicken dry. Then, rub the inside of the chicken with olive oil and season it with two tablespoons of the seasoning blend. Distribute the marinade in the cavity. Spread the onion and garlic paste inside the chicken to bind the flavors and ingredients.

  • Rub the chicken with olive oil and dust it with the remaining seasoning. Ensure that you cover the entire chicken using a fine-mesh sieve. Transfer it to a wire rack. Cover it with cling film and marinate in the fridge for four hours up to 24 hours.

  • Roast it.
    Remove the cling film and stuff the cavity with fresh rosemary. Spray olive oil all over the chicken to add moisture.
    In a preheated oven, roast the chicken at 200°C for 50 minutes or until cooked. Rotate the roaster every 16 minutes. After 50 minutes, turn off the oven and leave the chicken to rest in the oven for 10 minutes.
    If you have a meat thermometer, insert it into the chicken and check if it reads between 165°C to 190°C. Brush the chicken with oil to serve!
