Roast Chicken with Orange Ginger Glaze

1 hr 15 min



Roasting a whole chicken may sound scary. But using our method, you can easily whip up a hearty Sunday roast for the family!
Rubbing the chicken with the lemon zest, kaffir lime leaf and ginger mixture, gives the chicken a subtle citrusy scent. During the roasting process, basting every 15 minutes ensures that the chicken stays moist and juicy. Next, make a sweet, tangy and spicy glaze with MARIGOLD 100% Orange Juice and ginger.
Finish off by drizzling the lovely glaze over the roast chicken and dig in immediately!
