I have decided on Saturday that we would make our dinner simple. So we went for Roast Chicken and Oven Baked Vegetables plus Stir Fried Brown Button Mushroom (Whole). The recipe was from Kylie Kwong. I have done this once before but kind of forgotten part of the recipe.

The ingredients as follows:

1 For the Chicken:
1.1 Chicken (Whole);
1.2 Salt (to rub on Chicken body);
1.3 Butter ( to be placed in between the skin and flesh of chicken);
1.4 Rosemary ( it was not in original recipe but I added this since I have a pot of this herb);

2 For the Baked Vegetables:
2.1 Zucchini;
2.2 Pumpkin;
2.3 Parsnip;
2.4 Big Onions;
2.5 Carrots;
2.6 Olive Oil ( 1 table spoon);
2.7 Sea Salt ( 1/2 tea spoon);
2.8 Black Pepper;

3 For the Stir Fried Brown Button Mushrooms:
3.1 Raw Brown Button Mushrooms (whole);
3.2 Garlic (finely chopped);
3.3 Dried Parsley;
3.4 Extra Virgin Olive Oil;

4 Baking Process:
4.1 Preheat the Oven to 175 DegC;
4.2 Fill the oven container with the mixed vegetables;
4.3 Place the Chicken on top of the vegetables;
4.4 Place the whole thing into the Oven and bake for 1 hour;
4.5 Tune the oven to 240DegC and continue to bake the whole thing for another 1/2 to 3/4 hour;

I actually covered the set with Aluminium Foil for the first part to retained the moist and probably it was a wrong strategy because the chicken was only 90% cooked and blood were all over at the end. Removing the foil would probably enable the chicken to be fully cooked.

5 Stir Fried Brown Button Mushroom:
5.1 Heat up the frying pan to medium heat and pour in 2 table spoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. You will spoil the aroma if you turned to high heat;
5.2 Pour in the chopped garlic and stir the content;
5.3 Pour in the Mushrooms and continue stirring for another 5 - 10 minutes, add salt;
5.4 Pour in a pinch of Parsley, stir for another 1 minute;
