Spread the remaining butter all over the chicken skin. Place lemon halves and thyme into the cavity.

Season chicken with generous amounts of salt and paper and place in a roasting pan.

N°4

Cook for 1hr 20mins (20mins per 500g). scatter beans around side of chicken and base in roasting juices. Return to the oven for a further 10mins.
