Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C
  2. Remove the leaves from 4 stalks of thyme and combine with olive oil and minced garlic in a small bowl. Set aside
  3. Rub the chicken generously with kosher salt.
  4. Make a pocket between the skin and breast of the chicken. Put some of the thyme, garlic and olive oil mixture and massage the breast. Make a few diagonal cuts on the chicken’s legs. Rub some thyme, garlic and oil mixture inside the skin. Rub the remaining mixture over the chicken (getting some of it in between the skin and flesh wherever you can get a pocket)

  6. Sprinkle pepper on the chicken. Put the chicken in a baking dish
  7. Bake in a preheated oven for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes, reduce the temperature to 160°C and bake for another 30-45 minutes until the chicken is fully cooked.
  8. Serve with roasted vegetables.
