DIRECTIONS

  • To make the marinade:
  • Mix the garlic, onions, orange and lime juices in a bowl.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan until just smoking.
  • Cover your arms and put on potholder mitts. Slide the contents of the bowl into the hot oil – be very careful because the liquid will spatter.
  • Simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Season the marinade with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Pour everything into a blender or food processor and pulse 3 times to combine. Pour into a plastic container and cool to room temp; then cover and refrigerate. Will keep for up to 2 weeks.
  • To make the chicken:
  • Spread the chicken out in a baking dish and pour the marinade over it. Rub some of the marinade under the skin.
  • Marinate the chicken for 4 hours or overnight in the fridge.
  • Turn the oven onto 375.
  • Scatter the onion over the bottom of a roasting pan, and put the chicken on top, skin side up.
  • Pour the remaining marinade over the chicken and roast for 1 hour and 15 minutes, til the chicken is golden and cooked through.
  • Serve the chicken with pan juices and sprinkle with parsley to garnish. If desired, squeeze lime wedges over chicken.
