Method

Clean chicken well. Dab dry with several pieces of kitchen towels then rub combined marinade on the chicken inside and out. Leave aside for an hour.

Bring water to a boil and add herbs. Simmer for 10 minutes. Remove and leave to cool slightly.

Put shallots and spring onion into the chicken cavity. Drain the herbs and add into the cavity as well. Thicken the herbal stock with a little cornflour mixture.

Place aluminium foil in a fairly big casserole. Place chicken on the foil. Add the mushrooms and the herbal stock. Wrap up neatly, making sure that there is no leakage from the stock.

Bake in a preheated oven at 200°C for about 50-60 minutes. Serve at once.
