Ingredients

1 chicken for roasting
salt
dry or fresh herbs
2 tablespoons mayonnaise


Carefully wash and dry the chicken inside and outside. Salt it inside and outside, and add your favourite herb mixture (rosemary, thyme, oregano). Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise all over the chicken.


Wrap it in a double sheet of aluminium foil, closing carefully. Place on a roasting tin with the breast down, and put in a preheated oven, 220-250°C, for approx. 45 mins.


Take it out, carefully open the foil - try not to break it (watch out for the steam), turn the chicken and close the foil again. Put it back in the oven for 20-30 mins, depends on how big your chicken is.


In this way chicken is cooked in its own fat and juice, no need to add oil, it should be perfectly roasted in the end, but not dry.

Notes

I love roast chicken but I hate when it's dry, espescially the brest. This is the way my mother used to make it, and we love it.
