Aussie Roast Chicken that’s perfect for a family dinner!

Australian Bush Tucker Bites presents a Lemon Myrtle Roast Chicken Recipe.

Lemon Myrtle (Backhousia citriodora) is one of Australia’s best known bush food ingredients. Here’s one way that I use the nutritious leaves and powder in the kitchen.

You will need: a chicken, 3 teaspoons Lemon Myrtle powder, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 40 grams of butter (optional — fresh leaves, salt and pepper)

  1. (Stuff the fresh Lemon Myrtle leaves into the cavity of the chicken.)
  2. Push pieces of butter under the skin.
  3. Rub mixed powders (and salt and pepper) all over the surface of the chicken and into the crevices.
  4. Put the chicken into the air fryer using a rotisserie attachment.
  5. Cook at 190C (375F) for 60–90 minutes depending on the size of the chicken.
