Add all ingredients for the marinade into a bowl and mix well. Using your fingers carefully lift the skin of the chicken, then carefully using a knife make cuts on the breast, thighs and legs (this step is crucial as it will help with the marinating cooking cooking process). Rub marinade all over and under the skin (into the cuts), cover and refrigerate for 24 hours. Remove chicken from the refrigerator 2 hours prior to cooking. Preheat oven to 180°c. Stuff the cavity with whole garlic, parsley and and lemon. Tie the legs together to seal in the stuffing then place the chicken breast-side up into baking tray. Roast for 1 hour and 15-20 minutes, basting half way through cooking time, until fully cooked and tender. Remove from the oven, cover with foil and allow to stand for 10 minutes before serving.
