Re: Fast Roasted Chicken. Last weekend I roasted a chicken. I followed the recipe provided in recent Delia Smith roasted chicken video. It tasted great but while it was cooking the chicken splattered significant amounts of grease inside the oven and there was smoke. Now my oven needs to be cleaned. What caused the chicken to do this? I thought that the chicken was pretty dry before roasting. It was left on the counter for 40 minutes before roasting. What can I do next time to prevent this mess. Thank you

Hi Delia and Lindsey,
My name is Izzy and I am part of the UEA Radio Society Livewire. On the radio show I host with my friend, we found ourselves arguing over the proper placement of cheese on a pizza. One of us believes that cheese should be placed over the sauce base, but under the toppings. Another believed that the cheese should be the ultimate topping, covering both the sauce base and whatever else one might just to put on their pizza. Please could you aid us in settling this dispute, by advising us on the proper placement of cheese when making a pizza?
Your latest email contains a link for the recipe for TRADITIONAL ROAST CHICKEN WITH APPLE, SAGE AND ONION STUFFING, CRANBERRY AND SAGE SAUCE AND CHICKEN-GIBLET GRAVY.
However, the instructions for the chicken giblet gravy appear to be incomplete. Can we have the final part of the recipe included please?
