Truffle Pesto Roast Chicken

Truffle Pesto Roast Chicken

In Italy we never miss a chance to add flavour to a dish, and this roast chicken is a great example. Thyme, garlic, Sacla' Truffle Pesto and Parmesan all infuse heavenly flavours into the bird and keep it meltingly tender. A real Sunday lunch showstopper.
