This very seasonal dish - both mandarines and pomegranates are well into
their seasons now - is simple but unusual.

Segment 2 mandarines, being careful to remove as much pith as possible, and
if possible remove the seeds.

Remove the fatty pads from the cavity of a chicken and put the chicken in
an ovenproof dish, preferably a glass chicken roaster to maximise final
moistness. Surround the chicken with the mandarine segments and a few
sprigs of thyme. Halve and juice 3 more mandarines and pour the juice over
the chicken. Juice half a pomegranate and add. Season. Roast in a 190 C
oven for about an hour or until the juices run clear when the thickest part

When the chicken is cooked, remove it and the mandarine segments to a
serving dish and keep warm.

Scatter the pomegranate seeds over the mandarine segments and serve.
