CHICKEN:
Heat oven to 180degC. Place on the middle shelf (remove any shelves above)

Season the cavity of the chicken liberally with salt and pepper

Smother the breast and legs all over with 25g softened butter, then season the outside with salt and pepper.

Place in the oven and leave, undisturbed, for 1 hr 20 mins

Carefully remove the tin from the oven and, using a pair of tongs, lift the chicken to a dish or board to rest for 20 minutes, as you lift the dish, let any juices from the chicken pour out of the cavity into the roasting tin.

While the chicken rests, make the gravy.

Shred the chicken into nice sizeable chunks using a fork to hold in place and another to shred the meat from the bird. Resulting in a plate of shredding chicken ready for serving.

GRAVY:
Place the roasting tin over a low flame, then stir in 1 tbsp flour and sizzle until you have a light brown, sandy paste.

Pour in 250ml chicken stock, stirring all the time, until you have a thickened sauce.

Strain the gravy and season to taste.

Serve over chicken.
