The whole family will love Aaron Craze’s spicy chicken with a fresh, crisp salad and dressing

Method

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon zest and juice, chilli and rosemary and mix well.

2. Rub the chicken thoroughly with the marinade and leave for 2-3 hours.

3. For the salad cream: in a bowl over a pot of boiling hot water, whisk the eggs, mustard and flour for a few seconds until it comes together.

4. Slowly add the vinegar and oil and stir until thickened. Remove from the heat and add the sugar.

5. Allow the mixture to cool down, then stir in the double cream.

6. Preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6.

7. Put the marinated chicken, skin side up, onto a roasting tray and roast in the oven for 50 minutes per 2kg bird. Remove from the oven and leave to rest for 10 minutes before carving.

8. For the salad: toss all the ingredients together in a large bowl.

9. To serve, put some salad on a plate, top with a portion of chicken and accompany with salad cream on the side.
