6. Combine the oil and golden syrup in a small saucepan and heat until warm. Brush over the chicken, then sprinkle lightly with sea salt.
Place the chicken into a roasting pan, breast side up, and cook as per the instructions, or approximately 20 - 30 minutes per 500g. Cover the chicken with foil if the skin is getting too dark. Take the chicken out every 15 to 20 minutes and baste with the juices from the pan.

To check if the chicken is cooked put a skewer into the thickest part of the thigh. If the juices run clear the chicken is cooked, if they are pink, put the chicken back in the oven. Once the chicken is cooked, remove it and place onto a dinner plate, breast side down, and cover in foil. Let it rest for 10 minutes before carving.
