Lemon and Mint Roasted Chicken

I love a roast chicken, don’t you?  I have cooked ALL weekend which means the ONLY thing I could possibly throw together for Sunday dinner was a quick roast chicken.  This couldn’t be much simpler, bang it in the oven and relax for an hour.   Then all you need to do is a few veggies and maybe some sweet potato mash – voila!!  Oh and don’t forget to boil up your bones for a delicious stock.
