Some nights you just feel like a roast but want something a little different. If that’s the case- this one’s for you. This is an easy and delicious roast chicken flavoured with lots of garlic to fight off any bugs and aromatic and fresh herbs. The tomatoes and red wine vinegar add an extra zest that spice things up a little. Great for the whole family:)
