Serves 2-3 |
Takes 10 minutes to make and 1½ hours to roast |
The glaze sets into a sticky, shiny coating that gives a yummy sweet-and-sour flavour to the bird.
1.5kg whole free-range chicken
5 tbsp red wine vinegar
4 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Season the chicken and pour 2 tablespoons vinegar into the body cavity. Put in a roasting tin and roast for 1 hour 10 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, mix together the remaining vinegar with the syrup, cinnamon and sesame seeds. Brush half the mixture over the chicken and roast for a further 10 minutes. Brush with the remaining glaze and return to the oven for a final 10 minutes, until the chicken is deeply golden and shiny. Rest for 5 minutes before carving. Serve with roasted carrots and leeks.
