    Sat. Fat


1 tbsp. orange zest (1 large orange)

1 tbsp. grated fresh ginger

2 tsp. honey

2 tsp. sesame oil

2 tsp. kosher salt

3/4 cup reduced sodium chicken broth

1/2 cup fresh orange juice

1 tbsp. flour

Salt and pepper, to taste

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°F. Remove giblets and neck from chicken. Discard or cook separately.

Step 2

Combine zest, ginger, honey, sesame oil and salt. Loosen chicken skin around breast, drumsticks and thighs. Spread half the orange-ginger mixture evenly under skin and remaining on outside of chicken. Place in roasting pan.

Step 3

Bake at 425°F for 15 minutes. Reduce oven to 375°F and continue roasting 1 to 1 1/2 hours until internal temperature registers 180°F, measured at thickest part of the thigh. Remove from oven and let stand 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 4

Tip chicken to allow juices to run into pan. Place chicken on serving platter or cutting board. Drain drippings from pan into a fat separator or a plastic bag set in a cup. Pour drippings into a small saucepan (if using a bag, snip one corner and drain drippings from bag, discarding fat that floats to top). Add broth to drippings and bring to a boil. In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice and flour, breaking up any lumps; add to saucepan. Bring sauce to a simmer, cook and stir for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened; season with salt and pepper to taste. Carve chicken and serve with orange sauce.

A zesty Asian blend of spices and citrus combine to make a delicious alternative to roasted chicken. Makes a beautiful presentation; garnish with seasonal citrus. Serves 6
