    Bansidhe's Note:

    This was one of those experiments gone stunningly right in my kitchen: Since I think that the blood orange is sadly underused in cooking, I figured I could share. Any citrus fruit could be used in place of the blood orange with tasty results.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat your oven to 400°F.
    2. 2
      Pat your chicken very, very dry. Leave on the skin, set breast-side up on a rack inside a shallow baking pan. (If you want to line the pan with parchment paper beforehand, the cleanup after will be that much easier.)
    3. 3
      Gently loosen the skin with your fingertips and rub all over with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Season the cavity and the outside of the chicken with thyme.
    4. 4
      Wash and cut the blood oranges, halving them across.
    5. 5
      Without peeling, slice two halves into quarter- to eighth-inch thick slices and slide beneath the chicken skin. Repeat until you have at least one half of an orange's worth inserted.
    6. 6
      Either quarter or continue slicing the remaining orange halves and insert into the cavity with the thyme.
    7. 7
      Place the chicken on the center rack in the oven for an hour.
    8. 8
      Take the chicken out, poke the leg to make sure it's tender, cooked, and the juices run clear. Let it rest for at least 10 minutes.
    9. 9
      Serve up with roasted potatoes and another vegetable, if you like. Enjoy!

      This was really yummy! Now I want to try it with apples, apricots and anything else I can think of. I teamed this one up with http://low-cholesterol.food.com/recipe/lemon-roast-potatoes-11930 using orange juice instead of lemon juice. It was awesome.

      The chicken was tasty and moist. Very easy to make and most importantly, the kids said this recipe was a keeper.
