  • Marinades and barbecue-style sauces will all add variety to a roasted bird, as will dry spice rubs or some liquid in the pan while the bird cooks – you could use stock, wine, or a combination.
  • Chicken gravy can be a little pale and bland. If so, add 1/2 a teaspoon of soy or Worcestershire sauce. This will give it some colour and a little more savoury flavour.

HFG tip

  • Rubbing the skin with butter before it cooks will make it extra golden and crispy but does add extra, unnecessary fat.
  • Adding lemon or orange segments to the cavity inside the bird will help keep a big bird moist as it cooks, herbs and garlic will infuse flavour, and bacon strips placed over the breast of the bird will keep it moist and flavoursome.
  • A traditional-style stuffing slows the cooking time down, add another 10-20 minutes.
