DIRECTIONS

  • For marinade: In a large bowl, stir together marinade ingredients.
  • Rinse chicken inside and out and pat dry completely.
  • Remove excess fat from chicken and prick skin all over with a fork so that marinade can penetrate.
  • Add chicken to marinade and rub inside and out to coat.
  • Marinate chicken, covered and chilled, at least 4 hours and up to 1 day (closer to a day is better for flavour).
  • Preheat oven to 425F and line your roasting pan with aluminum foil.
  • Arrange chicken, breast side down, and pour marinade over it.
  • Roast chicken in middle of oven 30 minutes.
  • Turn chicken breast side up and baste with pan juices.
  • Roast chicken, basting occasionally, 40 minutes or more, until cooked through and skin is golden-brown. (If you find chicken is getting too dark, tent loosely with aluminum foil).
  • Let chicken stand, loosely covered, 10 minutes before carving.
  • Skim fat off juices and serve with chicken and steamed rice.
