At the moment we’re all spending more time than usual in our homes and gardens. For many of us, this has meant an opportunity to get creative in the kitchen, whilst wanting to remain thrifty and create healthy dishes that the whole family can enjoy at the same time. 
One way to add fun and flavour to dinnertime is to get out in the sun and make the most of your barbecue. This fantastic recipe for a Whole Roast Barbecue Chicken with Vegetables from our friends, at Weber, the grilling experts, is a great place to start and will provide a healthy and tasty meal for the whole family. 
Check out the recipe below with step by step instructions for the perfect dish, whether you have lots of skill on the grill… or are just winging it!

Prep Time: 15 Mins
Cooking time: One Hour
Method: Indirect 


1 whole chicken, 1½ kg
White wine, as required
Root vegetables:
1 red onion
1 clove of garlic
½ a small red kuri squash
¼ celeriac
2 baking potatoes
3 sprigs of rosemary


In the kitchen:
1.) Rinse and dry the chicken and rub with salt and pepper.
2.) Peel the red onion and cut in half. Slice each half. Peel the garlic and chop it. Peel the squash, celeriac and potatoes and dice coarsely. Turn them in oil, salt and pepper. Rinse the rosemary leaves, chop coarsely and turn them into the root vegetables.
3.) Place the root vegetables in the base of the poultry roaster and pour white wine into the cup. Place the chicken over the cup, so it rests on the vegetables. Remember to put the cap in the neck of the chicken, so the steam from the white wine stays inside the chicken.
At the barbecue:
1.) Get the grill ready for in-direct heat – approx. 180°C.
2.) Place the poultry roaster on the centre of the cooking grate, put the lid on and barbecue for about 1 hour. Check the chicken core temperature – it must be 75°C before the chicken is cooked through. Let the chicken stand for 15 minutes before carving and serving with the root vegetables.
