Spiced Sausage Meat

Remove the legs, wings and thighs from the chicken, place in a separate tray and marinade in salt, pepper, olive oil and ras el hanout.
Mix all the ingredients for the spiced sausage meat together and stuff under the skin of the chicken crown. Rub olive oil and salt on the skin and roast in the oven along with the tray of legs, wings and thighs at 200°c for 10 min. Turn down to 180°c for 20 minutes.
Cover the potatoes with foil and bake in the oven with the chicken. Remove the foil after 10 mins and return back to the oven to crisp up.
Quarter the lettuce and roast in a pan with olive oil and salt until coloured.
When the chicken has reached above 70°c inside. Remove from the oven and rest. Using the pan it was cooked in, add a chicken stock cube, flour and cook for 2 min. Add 500ml of water and reduce until desired consistancy. Serve.
