Hint: It usually takes about 30 minuted per 500g of weight to cook a chicken in a preheated oven at 180C.

Hint: A great tip for checking whether or not your chook is cooked, is to puncture one side with a fork and roll your chicken onto its side. If the juices run pink, leave it in the oven for a little bit longer but if they run clear, its good to go.
