The instruction how to make Crisp roast chook with kale gratin

  1. Preheat oven to 220C/200C fan forced. Place a metal baking dish in the oven for 10 minutes to heat up.
  2. Meanwhile, place chicken, breast-side down, on a work surface. Use kitchen scissors to cut down both sides of backbone and discard. Turn chicken over. Push down to flatten. Tuck wings under.
  3. Place coriander seeds in a mortar and pound with a pestle until coarsely ground. Add garlic and salt. Pound until a paste forms. Stir in oil. Rub mixture over chicken. Season. Chop the leaves of 1 sprig of the marjoram and 1 sprig of the rosemary. Sprinkle over chicken.
  4. Quickly place onion in the centre of prepared dish. Top with remaining rosemary and marjoram. Place chicken on top. Bake for 40 minutes or until juices run clear when a skewer is inserted in the thickest part of chicken. Set aside for 10 minutes to rest.
  5. Meanwhile, for the gratin, heat the oil in a small ovenproof frying pan over medium heat. Add garlic. Cook for 1 minute. Add kale. Use tongs to toss for 2-3 minutes or until wilted. Stir in creme fraiche. Season. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and cheese.
  6. Preheat grill to high. Cook gratin for 5 minutes or until golden and cheese is melted. Serve chicken with gratin and chips, if using.
