The lazy girl’s recipe for roast chicken

Got 10 minutes to spare? Great, because that’s exactly how long it takes to prepare this delicious roast chicken dish.



  • 1 chicken, spatchcocked
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp sweet paprika
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 200ml chicken stock
  • 6-8 whole garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 1 onion, cut into chunks
  • 1x400g jar Peppadew® Tomato and Jalapeno Chillies Pasta Sauce

Place the chicken, skin-side-up, in a roasting pan. Pour over the olive oil, then sprinkle with the oregano, paprika and salt.
Add the remaining ingredients to the pan and roast at 160°C, uncovered, for 50 minutes – 1 hour, or until juices run clear. Serve with roast potatoes and a green salad.

TIP: Cooking whole garlic cloves in their skins turns them mild and creamy.
