  • 1 small chicken
  • 1 tsp sumac
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp dried marjoram
  • 1 tsp onion salt
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp good quality mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp fresh marjoram
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1 whole lemon zested and juiced


  1. Rub the whole chicken all over with the mix
  2. Place on a shallow baking tray with a wire rack, this enables the heat to circulate around the chicken
  3. Roast at 200c for 35-45 mins for a small chicken (if larger check your packet for tips). Tip: check the juices are running clear in between the thigh and breast to ensure it is cooked through.
  4. For the mayonnaise add 2 heaped tbsp of good quality mayonnaise, roughly chop the marjoram and oregano and add in some finely zested lemon and a squeeze of lemon juice.
  5. Carve and serve with the lemon and herb mayonnaise and sides of your choice.
