  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Cut off lumps of excess fat from underside of chicken. Rub skin with cut side of garlic, then with the rosemary, lemon wedges and olive oil; don't discard when finished. Season inside and outside of cavity with a little salt and pepper. Stuff with the pieces of garlic, rosemary and lemon that you rubbed the chicken with, and chili flakes.

  3. A meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh (but not touching the bone) should read 185°F or 85°C. Let rest 15 minutes before cutting up and serving.
