DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Rinse chicken; pat dry.
  • In a small bowl stir together garlic, gingerroot, salt and pepper. Rub on skin of chicken and inside the body cavity too.
  • Skewer neck skin to back. Tie legs together with string. Tuck wings under back. Prick skin with a fork.
  • Place chicken breast side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.
  • Insert a meat thermometer into center of thigh muscle. Do not touch bone. Put chicken in oven to roast for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine jelly, honey, lemon peel and soy sauce. Cook and stir until jelly melts.
  • Brush chicken with about 1/4 of the jelly mixture during the last 10 minutes of roasting.
