So here we go.

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole organic chicken
  • 4 large carrots
  • 1-2 parsnip
  • 1/2 butternut pumpkin

  • Fresh or dried oregano and thyme
  • 1/2 fresh lemon
  • 1/2 cup of bone broth
  • Olive oil
  • Salt to taste

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 180
  • Dice your veggies
  • Place chicken and veggies into one large oven safe pot
  • Pour broth to base of pan
  • Drizzle olive oil so everything is lightly coated
  • Add herbs and seasoning
  • Place some fresh lemon on chicken. You can also add some fresh lemon juice for extra flavour
  • Cover the pot with a lid and leave in oven for 1 hour
  • Remove the lid and leave for a further 30 minutes until chicken and veggies have turned golden with a slight crunch

And that’s all there is to it.
