Tip1: If you have time roast 2x 1.5kg Woolworths fresh chickens. They will take about 1 hour 15 mins on 180⁰C fan forced.
Tip2: You can marinade the chicken in the vinaigrette 24 hours before serving. But its best to remove it from the fridge 15-30 minutes before serving to allow it to come to room temperature.
Tip3: You can replace the home made dressing with 1 cup of your favourite purchased dressing.
