1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Mix the garlic, jam, lemon juice and zest well and brush all over the chicken.

2. Arrange the chicken and garlic bulb (if using) in a roasting pan and cover with foil. Roast for 40 minutes.

3. TO FINISH Turn the chicken over and brush with the heated apricot jam. Roast for another 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is golden brown. Sprinkle the herbs over and serve
