    A well-seasoned chicken is cooked at a high heat for a speedy roast that leaves the bird moist and flavourful.

    Lemon and rosemary infused poussin are basted with a wine and garlic stock. Makes any occasion special. Crusty bread and a nice white wine complement this meal.

    When it comes to a Sunday lunch or special dinner, you can't beat roast chicken. This version, with its fragrant fresh herb stuffing, is simply the best.

    These chickens are rubbed with spices, then slow roasted in the oven for 5 hours. A great recipe for a rainy weekend!

    As far as herbs go, I think fresh thyme works best with chicken. I sometimes add four or five bulbs of green garlic (young garlic that looks like baby leeks) when it's in season and if I find it at the farmers' market.

    Rather than rubbing butter over a bird before roasting, here a paste of fresh herbs and fromage frais is pushed under the skin. This keeps the roasting chicken beautifully moist as well as adding a wonderful flavour. The pan juices are used to make a simple sauce.

    I suffer from heartburn and there are so many things that I can't eat. To my despair, I invented this recipe and a fabulous one it is. This recipe isn't just for heartburn sufferers, everyone can enjoy it. You can add garlic and onion if you wish, but I promise you won't miss them.

    A super-moist, tender and well-flavoured roast chicken. Chicken is rubbed with Dijon mustard and roasted in a cast-iron frying pan with white wine. Serve as an alternative roast for Sunday lunch or Christmas dinner.
