2. Put the spatchcocked chicken onto a lined baking tray and pour over the marinade. Use your hands to rub it all over, and on both sides. Cover the tin and pop in the fridge to marinade for at least 2 hours.

3. When ready to cook, remove from the fridge as you preheat the oven to 180 degrees C fan. Once the oven has come up to temperature, pop in the spatchcocked chicken on the middle shelf for an hour (or about 40 mins if using thighs) and turn halfway through.

4. Serve with a fresh green salad, or steamed greens of your choice.
