Holly's favourite recipe - Stuffed lemon & herb roast chicken

Eat Smart's Holly loves this recipe as it is simple, great tasting, always tender when eaten and has the addition of vegetables, fruits and spices in the stuffing to give it a high antioxidant concentration.

1 Fresh chicken to suit the number you are serving
1 large or 2 small lemons, cut into small wedges plus extra lemon
2 small onions, cut into small wedges
4-6 cloves peeled garlic
Handful of fresh herbs of your choice - tarragon, oregano, parsley, thyme all work well
Wash chicken inside and out and pat dry.
Stuff the inside of the chicken with a mixture of the lemon, onion, garlic and herbs.
Season the outside of the chicken as desired and squeeze juice of extra lemon over the whole bird
Roast in a covered barbecue by indirect cooking method for approx 1.5 hrs (or in an oven if preferred)
Serve with your choice of vegetables/salads.  Delicious!
