Roast Chicken & Vegetables for Kids Health

Few foods are as versatile and rich as chicken meat.  It can be cooked in an infinite number of ways and is appealing at any time of the year.  Serve with your healthy children’s favourite roasted vegetables.


  • 1 whole chicken
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Sea salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 220oC and lightly grease a roasting dish.  Place a wire rack into the roasting dish. 
  2. Under cold running water, rinse out the cavity of the chicken and dry the outside using paper towels.  Season the cavity with sea salt and pepper.
  3. Squeeze the juice from ½ the lemon over the chicken and rub it into the skin.  Place both halves of the lemon into the cavity.
  4. Brush the entire chicken skin in olive oil and season with salt and pepper and place on the wire rack, breast side facing up. 
  5. Roast for 1 hour or until juices are clear when the thigh is pierced with a skewer.  Allow to rest for 10 minutes covered before carving.

Serves: 4
