Love roast chicken but never have time to cook it? With my simple method for the best weeknight roast chicken, now you do. Just add some easy sides for a truly delicious midweek meal.
The time taken to roast your chicken pieces will vary slightly depending on the size of your meat and the efficiency of your oven. I use large free-range chicken pieces and these are usually done within the hour.
Your meat is cooked when the juices contain no sign of blood and when the meat has started to pull away from the drumstick. Overcooking will give you dry meat.
