Honey roast chicken:
Cook this recipe for your Sunday roast and save the leftovers, or get ahead by cooking the whole chicken to use in a variety of leftover meals throughout the week.

Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Slice 2 large onions and place in a roasting tray. Pat a large chicken (roughly 1.9kg) dry with kitchen paper and rub all over with 60g soft unsalted butter and season inside and out with salt and pepper. Place on top of the onions and squeeze over the juice from 2 halved unwaxed lemons. Put the lemon halves in the cavity of the chicken, along with 4 dried bay leaves. Drizzle the chicken with 2 ½ tbsp clear honey and roast for 1 hr 10 mins, or until the chicken is cooked through and the juices from the thickest part of the thigh run clear. If browning too quickly, cover with foil. Store the cooked, cooled chicken in the juices from the roasting tin to keep moist. Keeps chilled for up to 3 days.
