Video Recipe: Slow Roast Chicken


This is my absolute favourite dish at the moment. It’s got lots of healthy fats, protein, delicious and is highly healing and anti inflammatory due to the nutritious softened cartilage, soft meat, coconut oil, turmeric and lemon. This is real gentle energy food, especially if you have adrenal fatigue and gut issues. Doesn’t hurt that it’s finger-licking delicious! (We’ve had it for 3 weeks in a row now at home.)

1 whole free-range chicken (hormone free / antibiotic free)
3 large onions (sliced into quarters or 6 parts)
6 large garlic cloves (or 8 smaller ones)
4 Tbsp coconut oil
2-3 Tbsp coconut aminos
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp sea salt
approx. 1/2 tsp turmeric
1-2 sprigs rosemary

Preheat oven to 150 degrees C. Stuff chicken with a third of the onion / garlic mixture. Secure chicken legs with string. Place chicken breast-side down in large over-proof pot. Add remaining onion / garlic around pot. Drizzle coconut oil, lemon juice and coconut aminos over chicken. Sprinkle sea salt and turmeric on top of chicken. Add rosemary sprigs into pot and cover. Leave in oven for 4 hours. Option: Take off lid for last 30 minutes to reduce sauce and for crispier chicken skin.

Serving options:
– Roast mixed vegetables (sweet potato / parsnip / potato / carrot)
– Basmati rice and steamed veggies on the side
– On top of quinoa with some fresh salad greens and sauerkraut
