This chicken has a fresh flavour and is simple to do.

Ingredients (makes 1 Split chicken)

  • 1 Inghams Whole roast chicken, butterflied
  • 1 Lemon, zest and juiced
  • 2 TBS Fresh Oregano, chopped finely
  • 2 TBS Olive oil
  • Garlic crushed (to taste)
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 Lemon for serving


  1. After butterflying the chicken, wash the inside, and pat dry with paper towel
  2. Combine the lemon zest & juice, garlic, oregano, oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl and combine well
  3. Place chicken flat into a baking tray, and pour over the marinade. Massage it into the chicken, making sure to cover the whole chicken. Allow to marinade for 2-3 hours
  4. Pre heat your grill (we used our hooded BBQ with the lid down) and lightly brush with oil. Grill the chicken for approximately 50-60 minutes turning half way through, until golden and cooked through. Cooking time will depend on the size of the chicken, what type of grill you use etc.
  5. Allow the chicken to rest for about 10 minutes before serving. Serve with home made wedges, salad and slices of lemon

  • These flavours sound delicious and fresh!


  • Something I’ll be trying for a family meal. Yum, thanks for sharing!


  • Love chicken cooked on a barbecue. So much easier and quicker to cook when its butterflied, and it’s a good way to incorporate more flavour too


  • I never buy or cook a whole chicken anymore. It seems much cheaper to buy one already cooked, or work with chicken pieces instead. The flavours seem yum though.


  • Simple ingredients but would be a while lot of flavour I reckon looks good!!


  • Thanks for the recipe. Oregano is my favourite flavour.


  • Oh yummy.


  • Do you leave the bones in or take them out?

    • You cook it with the bones in just as you would a roast chicken, and then pull the meat off once cooked


  • Sounds lovely – you could probably do this with chicken pieces, too.


  • This sounds lovely, light and tasty.


  • Sounds delish and lemon and chicken are always a good combo


  • Thanks for sharing such a simple recipe – know what we are having on Australia Day
