    Chef Kate's Note:

    Ginger arrived in Italy with Arabic traders or North African Jewish immigrants, so it's likely that this is a Sicilian or Livornese recipe. From "Cucina Ebraica" by Joyce Goldstein.

      I love this book and the recipe. I made this 2 years ago (I think) for a family holiday dinner and everyone enjoyed it, even dad who hates poultry. Thanks for poting.

      Wow Kate, this is a great recipe. I cooked this in a roasting dish with potatoes & kumara (New Zealand sweet potato). Orange complements kumara well, so boy it tasted good. Once I had removed the chicken from the pan I made gravy by adding some chicken stock & about 1/4 c of NZ chardonnay (which just happened to be citrusy - perfect). Added some flour/butter paste & cooked this off to make a wonderful fruity gravy. This is a fantastic recipe, I did miss having stuffing but it was only a small loss. As the gravy & chicken is quite rich a little goes a long way. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

      This is an excellent recipe and not one of those you can throw together and forget. I faithfully basted mine every 15 minutes and was wonderfully pleased with the results. The skin was beautiful and looked very much like the photo. The citrus helps this dish to be moist and flavorful. I used the option of pomegranate juice in place of the lemon. The chicken I used may have been larger than 5 pounds due to the fact that I cooked the chicken an additional 30 minutes. The chicken was served with Butter Roasted Carrots Butter Roasted Carrots and Episcopal Green Beans Episcopal Green Beans for a delicious meal.
