Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse and dry chicken. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Insert one whole orange in the chicken. Place in roasting pan, breast side down, and surround it with onion slices.
  3. Mix juice with ginger and pour over chicken. Roast uncovered at 350 degree F for 1/2 an hour.
  4. Remove chicken from the oven, turn over, and smear with honey. Surround the chicken with second orange slices and return to oven.
  5. After five minute, baste with wine and orange juice. If browning occurs to quickly, cover with foil.
  6. Baste again after 1/2 hour, continue cooking until drumsticks are removed easily, about 1 more hour.
  7. Remove the orange from the chicken, and slice it. Garnish with herbs as per taste. (this is unclear to me, but it may refer to salt and pepper).
