This was such a tender and juicy chicken, with wonderful yet, subtle flavors. The citrus and nutmeg were not as strong as I thought they would be based on the great aroma coming from the oven. But each bite had the perfect hint of both flavors! The cooking method resulted in even browning and a perfectly cooked chicken. Thanks for posting this recipe.Made for Went to Market tag game.
I've made this a couple times and I love it. The orange flavor really getts into every piece of chicken. Served it with Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes.
Well, you surely will know how much we enjoyed this, since we only have the other half of a 4.6 lb. roaster left. My goodness, simple enough to put together, and the taste and aroma of the chicken were captivating. I followed this exactly, but instead of the lemon juice, I used lime juice (thought I had a lemon). My chicken was yummy dreamy, between the oiled and buttered bird mixed with nutmeg, to the citrus juice that followed...it was so juicy, you would of thought the chicken was a Valencia orange itself it was that tender. Thanks mikekey. I used the citrus juice over a Tofurkey as well, and the taste was equally as fabulous, that is, if you like Tofurkey. Will use this often!
