    Rinse and pat dry your chicken. Carefully separate the skin away from the meat on the breast and leg meat, by sliding your nger under the skin and gently pulling it away from the meat. This will allow you to create a pocket for the avoured ghee.

    Taking a spoonful at a time, slide the ghee mixture under the skin, being careful not to pierce the skin. Insert ghee to cover the breast and leg meat. Place the lemon inside the cavity along with half of the thyme. Secure the legs together with kitchen string. Rub olive oil over the chicken, then sprinkle with the remaining salt and pepper.

    Place the remaining thyme on the base of a roasting tray. Place the chicken on top of it. Add the carrots around the chicken. Place in the oven for 1 hour, or until the chicken is cooked through. If the chicken is browning too quickly, cover it lightly with foil.

    Once cooked, remove from the oven, cover and let rest for 15 minutes before carving. Serve with roasted carrots.
