Whole Roast Chicken

Whole Roast Chicken РWe recently acquired a Lumina toaster oven to use in our office, up until now we had only used it to heat up some frozen pies and the likes. Nothing too exciting, so we decided to give something more adventurous a go. After some interesting discussion we agreed on cooking a small roast, unsure on what kind of roast, we decided to see what we could find at the supermarket.
Nev set off to the supermarket that afternoon in search of the perfect sized piece of meat to roast in our little toaster oven. It was my job to prepare the vegetables to cook up with our currently unknown roast meat.
The next morning he arrived with a bag of goodies, a whole chicken and some ready-to-serve gravy, let the adventures begin!

Ingredients
  • 1 Whole Chicken
  • 2 potato
  • 2 carrot
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil
  • 2 rasher bacon
Instructions
  1. Preheat your toaster oven to around 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Cut up potato and carrot and put in suitable size bowl/container. Add olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Stir/mix to cover vegetables with oil/salt/pepper. Set aside while preparing the chicken.
  3. Rub some olive oil into skin of chicken, coat with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Cooking times will vary depending on size of chicken and the effectiveness of your toaster oven. We cooked our chicken for around 2.5 hours in total.
  5. Start cooking your chicken in suitable tray, leaving room to add vegetables.
  6. About half way through cooking, add your vegetables to toaster oven.
  7. 3/4 of the way through cooking, add bacon rashers to top of chicken. Continue cooking.
  8. Once cooked serve on with a generous amount of gravy. We just used a Masterfoods ready to serve gravy which we heated up in the microwave, you could easily create your own gravy from the juices left in the cooking tray.
