Discover how to make Curry and Sage Roast Chicken, a delightful blend of aromatic spices and tender chicken, perfect for a family dinner. This gluten-free and dairy-free recipe is not just tasty but also healthy, making it a perfect choice for those special family gatherings.


Step 1: Prepping the Chicken

Start your culinary adventure by preheating the oven to 350°F (175°C). Take your whole chicken and give it a good clean inside and out. Pat it dry with paper towels to remove any excess moisture. This step is crucial for that perfect roast.
Pro Tip: Ensuring the chicken is dry helps the skin get that coveted crispy texture.

Step 2: Creating the Flavor Fusion

In a mixing bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, orange juice, minced garlic, honey, chopped sage, curry powder, black pepper, and turmeric and whisk well. Cover your chicken with this vibrant mixture both inside and out. Tuck some garlic and sage under the skin for an extra burst of flavor. This step infuses the chicken with all the aromatic and tangy tastes, making each bite a delightful experience.
Pro Tip: Placing some of the seasonings under the skin helps the flavors penetrate deeper into the meat.

Step 3: Roasting to Perfection

Place your beautifully seasoned chicken in a baking pan. Roast in the oven, making sure to baste occasionally with its juices. The cooking time varies based on the size of the chicken but generally takes about 1 to 1.5 hours. You’ll know it’s done when the skin turns a gorgeous golden brown and the juices run clear.
Pro Tip: Not sure if it's done? Use a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the thigh; 165°F (74°C) means it's ready.
