Sunday night is always chaotic with getting ready for the new working week, so now in my house Friday nights are special family dinner. A Family Roast chicken is succulent, tender and really easy to make. I usually use a Steggles chicken as they are already lightly marinated so perfect on their own – or it is simple to ‘glam’ it up with a few simple ingredients! Plus what I love about this meal is it is big enough to feed a hungry family!



  1. Preheat your oven to 170 degrees.

  2. Remove your Steggles chicken from the packet, rinse and dry thoroughly with paper towels.

  3. Carefully lift the skin from the breast meat of the chicken and smother the butter underneath (this gives your chicken skin crispiness).

  4. In a small bowl mix together the honey, seeded mustard, Dijon mustard, garlic and mixed herbs to form a paste.

  5. Rub the mix over the chicken and massage into the skin.

  6. Place any excess mix into the chicken cavity.

  7. Cut the lemon in half and push both halves into the chicken cavity.

  8. Bake at 170 degrees for approximately 60 minutes (use a meat thermometer to make sure you get the perfect chicken every time!).

  9. 10 minutes before the end of cooking, drizzle the extra two tablespoons of honey over the chicken and sprinkle over the Thyme.

  10. Remove from the oven, allow to rest for 5 - 10 minutes before serving with honey mustard sauce (see below) mashed potato, steamed greens and crusty garlic bread.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Use the left over liquid to make a delicious sauce.  Pour the liquid into a small saucepan.  In a small cup dissolve a tablespoon of cornflour in a little water and add to the sauce.  Heat until thickened and pour over the top.
  • Glazed Honey Mustard Roast Chicken is best made fresh and eaten hot.
