    This recipe is fantastic. I made this last night for my boyfriend, he absolutely loved it and so did I. I brushed on a little orange marmalade about a 1/2 hour before the chicken was done for a little extra flavor. :)

    Brushing with orange marmalade sounds like a wonderful idea.

    in the recipe the ginger is mixed with the orange juice as instucted. A bit of orange rind won't make it bitter either

    ok but when and where does the fresh ginger go - did I miss something in the recipe? lol.... starting to rinse chicken now...I usually cut up the chicken before putting it inside the bird - I also remove the rind to avoid any bitterness....

    Israel is known for their orange and citrus crops and their use in cooking.In the cavity, The acid in the oranges also helps tenderizes the meat as well as giving some flavor. One might want to use grated orange rind also.
    My family loves this recipe
    Anyone who really wants an orange burst should brush their chicken during roasting perhaps with some orange marmalde or preserves the last 20 minutes or 30 minutes. Israeli exports a great Haifa orange preserve product.

    I just asked my BF whose from Israel originally - he loves this dish - and here I was thinking - oh yeah, I make this all the time, not knowing this is popular over there.... I have been making orange roasted chicken for years - quite nice - I like the added touch of the ginger and honey.... I just might make your dish tonight...

    Made this tonight. I was expecting more of an orange burst flavor. What role does the whole orange in the bird cavity play?

    Think I would like to enhance the flavor with more spices.

    Bird was moist and tender.

    Covered with foil for the last hour of bake time. Had to bake an additional 15 minutes before the breast plug thermometer popped up.
