A twist on the traditional: Roast Chicken with Mango

This recipe works equally well with chicken or turkey. A traditional roast chicken can become dry, basting is one method for avoiding this. An alternative option which will not only add colour to your final dish but keep the meat moist is using mango. Executive Chef at Knowsley Hall, Paul Macnish, shows us a delicious roast chicken with a fruity twist.
