  • Recipe serves4-6
  • Preparation time20 minutes
  • Cooking time90 minutes


  • 1.3kg whole chicken, cleaned with giblets removed
  • 1 KNORR Lemon and Italian Herbs Cook-in-Bag
  • 3 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 small butternut, peeled and sliced into rounds
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed


  • No need to preheat oven.
  • Carefully place the whole chicken into the roasting bag together with the veggies.
  • Season with dry Knorr mixture. Close bag at end with blue tie supplied.
  • Very gently massage Knorr mixture into chicken on a stable surface. Ensure dry mixture is spread evenly.
  • Place bag sideways in a cool oven dish, ensuring ingredients are evenly spaced.
  • Bake at 180C for 90 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 sides of the oven).
  • Carefully cut the top of the bag open 15 minutes before the end of cooking and return to the oven to continue to roast – this will allow the skin of the chicken to crisp up.
  • When the chicken is ready carefully cut open the bag, coat chicken in any remaining juices – allow to rest before carving and then serve with the roasted veggies.
