Turn the classic Kiwi roast chook up a notch this year, with our oh-so-easy festive tray bake! Take your chicken tray bake to the next level by adding a handful of fresh sage leaves before you put it in the oven. 

Tip: The liquid left in the baking tray after cooking is a fantastic addition to the stuffing balls, put it aside ready for use in the next recipe!
