Recipe type: Lunch
  • 1 Poussin
  • 1 Lemon
  • 2 clove Garlic
  • 5 sprig Thyme
  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil
  • Salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 200c, 180c fan, gas mark 4, 350f. Gently insert your finger under the right side skin of the poussin and ease it along the breast creating a gap. Insert one of the slices of lemon in to the gap you've made under the skin and top with one of the pieces of garlic. Then ease your finger under the skin of the thigh and insert the lemon and garlic. Repeat on the left hand side.
  2. Place on a roasting tray and drizzle with the olive oil, rub this into the bird. Liberally sprinkle with salt (this helps to crisp up the skin). Place in the oven for 30-40 minutes until golden brown and the juices run clear.
