Whole Roasted Stuffed Chicken Wrapped in Bacon

I haven't made this style of roast chicken in ages! Yummy, can't wait for dinner!

Pat the chicken dry with paper towel. Make a stuffing with chunky chopped garlic, onion, mixed herbs, a splash of olive oil and some powdered chicken stock. Stuff the chicken and wrap it with bacon breast side up.

Baste with the juices during cooking. I'm serving with roasted carrots, foil baked jacket potatoes and greens..
