RECIPE: Roast Chicken

There’s something so special about a family roast. Getting the family together to feast over such a hearty, nourishing meal is such an amazing thing to do and coming into winter I can see this coming a weekly tradition in our house.
What I love most about making a roast dinner is that it is so easy to throw together, yet so tasty and so unbelievable nourishing. There is not much in cutting up a heap of veggies and throwing it all in the oven for an hour or so. And whats better is that one chicken can go so far; making one great meal of a roast dinner to then making a delicious and super nourishing broth with the bones left over. Bone Broth is so warming for the body and really helps to fight off the flu season. A whole chicken really is a complete winter comfort food.
With Mothers day just in 2 sleeps now and the cooler weather coming in I wanted to share with you my absolute favourite roast dinner recipe for you to enjoy with your family on Sunday. Its a little different to your average roast chook recipe but let me tell you; it is so so delicious! This is what we will be devouring on Sunday. Give it a go and let me know what you think. 
1 Whole Chicken
2 Tbls Tamari Sauce
2 Tbls raw Honey
1 Onion; halved
2 cloves garlic
3 sprigs Rosemary
A heap of mixed veg for roasting including sweet potato, carrots, potatoes, pumpkin, Onions, etc.
2 Tbls Coconut oil
1. Switch oven onto 180 degrees. 
2. Stuff the chicken with 1 onion, halved and the garlic
3. Brush or massage the honey and Tamari Sauce all over the chicken skin.
4. Place whole Chook into a Steamer (I use the Thermomix sitting chicken in the Varoma but you can use a pot and basket with lid) and steam whole chook for 1 hour.
5. While chicken is steaming away; place all your chopped mixed veggie smothered in the coconut oil onto a baking tray and into the oven to get cooking.
6. Once chicken has been steaming for 1 hour; Transfer chicken to a baking tray and place into the oven with the veggies to crisp up for 10-15 minutes. Veggies should be just about done.
7. DELISH! Enjoy your Family Roast.
