How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • . Rub the outside of the chicken with one of the lemon quarters, then discard.
  • . In a small bowl, stir together the lemon and orange zests plus one tablespoon of the grated ginger.
  • Rub this mixture evenly in the cavity of the chicken.
  • . Put the lemon and orange quarters inside the bird.
  • Place the chicken on a rack in a roasting pan.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • . Combine margarine or olive oil in a small bowl with lemon and oranges juices, honey and the remaining two tablespoons of ginger.
  • Mix well.
  • . Place the chicken in the oven and roast, basting with the citrus juice mixture you've just made at least four times during cooking.
  • Cook about one hour or until the juices run clear when the thigh is pierced with a knife.
  • . Transfer the chicken to a serving platter and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Carve and garnish with additional orange sections.
