  • Preheat oven to 350*.

  • Cut grapefruit in half.
  • Squeeze one half over bird.
  • Place used half of grapefruit in the cavity of the bird and tie legs together.
  • You can also fold the bird's wings back at this point if you want to.
  • Cook bird for about an hour and 15 minutes to an hour and a half or until leg joint is loose and juices run clear.
  • While bird is cooking use the other half of the grapefruit to"baste" the chicken.
  • If the chicken begins to get too dark (this can happen because of all the natural sugar in the grapefruit) cover loosely with foil.
