- 1kg Agria potatoes, washed and peeled
- 250g broccolini

- Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Pat the chicken dry, and place in a roasting tray.
- In a small bowl, mix together the mixed herbs, garlic powder, salt, pepper and generous drizzle of oil. Spread evenly over the entire chicken. Place the halved lemon in the cavity, then put the chicken into the oven for 90 minutes or until the juices run clear.
- Place the potatoes in a large pot of water, then set on the stove. Bring to a boil, and cook until just tender when tested with a knife. Drain well.
