    • 1 garlic clove finely chopped
    • 1 tbsp cider vinegar

    Method

    1. Bash the lemongrass and place under the chicken for fragrance whilst it cooks.
    2. Slice the orange and then remove the skin. Place the slices over the top of the chicken. Repeat for the lemon.
    3. Slice the garlic in half across the equator of the bulb and place in the bottom of the tray
    4. Peel and slice the onion and lay over the skin.
    5. Roast the chicken for 20 minutes per pound plus an extra 10 minutes.
    6. Drizzle the chicken with honey and return to the oven for 5 minutes.
    7. 15 minutes before the end of the cooking time, get the Leisure grill preheated to medium high and remove the grillpan so it’s ready to use for the side dish. You should also turn on the smaller non-fan oven on your Leisure cooker so it’s ready to use for the dessert. This needs to be at 180C.
    8. To make the sauce mix the ingredients in a bowl with two tablespoons of the roasting juices.
