The final step: ENJOY IT.

1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C. Mix together 1 tablespoon of honey, the Vegemite, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper to create a marinade for the chicken.

2. Place chicken in an oven-proof tray and marinate the chicken by rubbing the marinade into the skin.


3. Place chicken in oven and roast for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

4. Prepare roast vegetables by marinating with oil and honey and add to oven to roast for last 45 minutes.

5. Serve chicken with roast vegetables and enjoy.

We would also add that you should definitely have a lamington for dessert.
