Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2 - Prepare the Chicken:

Rinse the chicken halves under cold water and pat them dry with paper towels. Cutting the chicken in half helps it cook more evenly and allows for faster cooking.

Step 3 - Season the Chicken:

Sprinkle both sides of each chicken half generously with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. You can also season the chicken with any other desired herbs or spices for extra flavour.

Step 4 - Place on Baking Sheet:

Place the seasoned chicken halves on the parchment-lined baking sheet, skin side up, making sure they are evenly spaced apart.

Step 5 - Roast in the Oven:

Transfer the baking sheet to the preheated oven and roast the chicken halves for about 40-50 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 75°C (165°F) and the skin is golden brown and crispy.

Step 6 - Check for Doneness:

To ensure the chicken is fully cooked, use a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chicken (without touching bone). If the temperature reads 75°C (165°F), the chicken is done.

Step 7 - Rest and Serve:

Once cooked through, remove the chicken halves from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute, resulting in juicier meat.

Step 8 - Slice and Serve:

After resting, slice the chicken halves into portions and serve hot. You can serve them alongside your favorite side dishes like roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a fresh salad.
