  • 1 Egg
  • 25 ml Walnuts, lightly toasted
  • 1 Clove crushed garlic
  • 50 g Diced Bacon
  • 1 Small onion, finely diced
  • 15 ml Robertsons Sage
  • 250 ml Fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1.3 kg Whole chicken, cleaned
  • 3 Carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 KNORR Cook-in-Bag Spicy Roast Chicken
  • 10 ml sunflower oil


  • No need to preheat oven.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan and fry bacon until crisp and golden.

  • Place chicken into the roasting bag with the potatoes, carrots and butternut and season with dry KNORR mixture. Close bag at end with blue tie supplied.
  • Very gently massage KNORR mixture into the chicken on a stable surface. Ensure dry mixture is spread evenly.
  • Place bag sideways in a cool oven dish.
  • Bake at 180⁰C for 70 minutes on the lowest shelf in the oven. Ensure that the grill is off at all times. Keep enough room for the bag to expand (bag must not touch the sides of the oven).

  • Carefully cut open the bag and transfer to a serving dish with any remaining juices and serve.
