  • Large baking dish
  • Vegetable steamer or pot for boiling


  • 1 Whole Chicken size depends if you are cooking for other people, you will be having the left overs for lunch the next day
  • 1 lg sweet potato cut into large cubes
  • ½ butternut pumpkin cut into large cubes
  • 1 broccoli
  • 2 handfuls green beans


  • Depending on the size of your chicken it will take varying time to cook. A rough guide is 40 minutes per Kg; the oven is set at 180 degrees C.
  • You can always use a knife to cut into the chicken to see if the juices run clear – this means the chicken is cooked. Keep the chicken carcass and use for future chicken stock.
  • Rinse the chicken thoroughly under cold water, pat dry. Then add a sprinkling of pink Himalayan sea salt and pepper to the skin, drizzle with olive oil. Pop into the oven.
  • Peel and cut the sweet potato and pumpkin into cubes. Place around the chicken in the pan, that way the chicken juices flavor them. You can add some olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, turmeric, or whatever spices you like to flavor them. It will take a rough 45 minutes to cook, use a knife to prick them and see if they're soft in the middle.
  • Boil a pot of water, add the broccoli and green beans – cook for 5 minutes or until they become al dente. Alternately use a steamer and steam until al dente. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve when chicken is ready.
