Ginger-Lime Tube Pan Roast Chicken


1 3 to 4 pound organic roaster chicken
1 medium lemon
2 limes
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 heaping teaspoon Kosher salt
1 cup olive oil


1. Pat the chicken dry and rub it all over with the olive oil, including under the skin as much as possible.

2. In a small bowl combine the zest and juice of the lemons and limes, the salt and the ground ginger. Place half of the lemon and half of one lime in the cavity of the bird and push it all the way back toward the neck. Rub the citrus ginger paste all over the chicken on both sides, making sure to nudge some under the skin as well. Place the chicken in a clean roasting pan and all it to rest for at least 4 hours or up to overnight in the fridge.

3. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

4. Remove the chicken from the fridge and stand it feet side down on the tube of a tube pan and place the pan back in the baking sheet. Roast for about 60 minutes, or until the skin is crispy and golden and the juices run clear.
