Here's How To Make Jamie Oliver's Ultimate Roast Chicken
Mouthwatering tips for the best roast ever. Jamie Oliver writes exclusively for BuzzFeed Life.
A perfect roast chicken dinner is one of life's most comforting pleasures and should be nothing short of a complete joy.
First up is chicken prep. A pierced lemon and a bunch of fresh woody herbs up the cavity will add bags of extra flavour and get you off to a flying start.
Roast the chicken for 1 hour and 20 minutes, basting halfway through.
As your chicken roasts, crack on with this next-level mix of sticky, gorgeous vegetables. They’re all cooked in the same tray, but with delightfully different flavour combos.
The roast potatoes are aromatic, with rosemary and garlic…
...whereas the carrots and beets are dressed simply in olive oil – for now.
The true genius of this recipe comes towards the end. Around 10 minutes before they’re cooked, simply drizzle honey over the carrots…
…and some sweet, sticky balsamic vinegar over the beetroot.
At this stage, take your potatoes to the next level.
You can also use a plastic water spritzer to spray the potatoes with a little vinegar for an added smack of flavour.

Here's how to make the gravy.
The next trick is knowing what to do with the chicken once it’s roasted.
Keep your final veg serving simple.
The last trick is one you’ll definitely have heard of.
