Here is a simple instruction on how to oven cook/ roast a whole chicken:
TO ROAST: Preheat fan assisted oven to 180°C/375°F/Gas Mark 6.
Remove all packaging
Pull out legs to open cavity
remove at the knuckle and rub oil sparingly into the skin and inside cavity and season both inside and out with salt & pepper.
Place in a roasting dish and cook for 40 minutes per kg plus an additional 20 minutes. Baste occasionally during cooking.
To ensure the chicken (Leg and Breast) is cooked insert a skewer into the thickest part of the meat. If the juices run clear, not pink, it is fully cooked through. Remove from the oven, place on a serving plate and rest at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before carving. This will let the chicken relax and the juices settle to enhance the eating quality.

Looking for a fully furnished apartment in Calgary? Then I would recommend that you check out the website called RentCalgary.com. This is actually where my sister got her lovely home; it is a modern apartment, close to the city Centre, equipped with furniture’s and appliances and to top it all, it is immaculately clean!
To be honest, looking for an apartment online is the easiest thing to do, especially on the website given. They got all the information listed, like the type of property for rent, photos of the property, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, size of the whole area, furnishings and appliances, including special features of the apartment/house, the monthly rental and deposit, together with the date of availability and contact number with the name of the person in charge of the letting. I believe that these are the usual things you need when looking for a home to rent and all you need then is the personal viewing of the place and if you like it, then go for it! Just like what my sister did, and she is now very happy with her new home and I hope you will be too.
