1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Place 2 lemon quarters, half the onion wedges, 2 garlic cloves and 2 sprigs of rosemary into the cavity of the chicken. Place the bird in a roasting tin, spray with oil and season the skin with black pepper.

Tightly cover the tray with foil and roast in the oven for 10 minutes. Add the rest of the vegetables to the tray and spray with oil. Re-cover the tray with foil and return to the oven for 20 minutes.
