Perfect for the picnic esky, this succulent roast chicken is as tasty cold as it is hot.

Preparation Time 20 minutes
Cooking Time 85 minutes

Ingredients (serves 6)
2kg whole chicken
1 1/2 tbs olive oil
4 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbs ground cumin
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes
Fresh continental parsley leaves, to serve

Rinse chicken inside and out. Pat dry with paper towel. Place the chicken, breast-side down, on a clean work surface. Use poultry shears or sharp kitchen scissors to cut down either side of backbone and discard. Open the chicken to lie flat. Turn breast-side up and push down to flatten. Tuck wings under. Place in a glass or ceramic baking dish.

Combine the oil, garlic, cumin, paprika, cinnamon, turmeric and chilli flakes in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Rub the oil mixture over the chicken. Cover and place in the fridge for 1 hour or overnight to marinate.

Preheat oven to 200°C. Place chicken in a roasting dish. Roast, turning once, for 1 1/4 hours or until juices run clear when the thickest part of the chicken is pierced with a skewer. Set aside for 10 minutes to rest.
Cut the chicken into pieces. Drizzle over the pan juices. Sprinkle with parsley.
