  • 1 Whole Medium Butterfly Chicken
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 whole garlic bulbs, halved crossways
  • 1 brown onion, cut into wedges
  • 1 fennel, cut into wedges
  • 1/2 bunch oregano
  • 1/2 bunch sage
  • 4 rosemary sprigs, leaves picked
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 60g butter, melted
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 400g brussels sprouts
  • 1 cup (250ml) chicken stock


  • Preheat oven to 180°C. Place chicken, breast-side down, on a clean work surface. Use kitchen scissors to cut along each side of the backbone to remove. Turn chicken breast-side up. Use the heel of your hand to press down on the breastbone to flatten. Season.
  • Heat half the oil in a large flameproof roasting pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken, breast-side down. Cook for 5 mins or until golden. Turn and cook for a further 5 mins. Transfer to a plate.
  • Heat remaining oil in the pan. Add lemon and halved garlic and cook for 1-2 mins or until light golden. Transfer to a plate. Add the onion and fennel and cook, turning occasionally, for 5 mins or until golden. Remove from heat.
  • Return the lemon, halved garlic and chicken, breast-side up, to the pan with the onion and fennel. Finely chop half the oregano, sage and rosemary. Place in a bowl with the butter and crushed garlic and stir to combine. Brush evenly over the chicken. Arrange the brussels sprouts around the chicken in the pan. Pour the stock around the chicken. Sprinkle with remaining oregano, sage and rosemary leaves. Roast for 1 hour or until the juices run clear when the thickest part of the thigh is pierced with a skewer. Set aside for 10 mins to rest.
