Chicken is marinated for several hours in orange juice and an herb mixture for an effortless and elegant meal.
  • 1 Whole Chicken, this one is an organic 4 lb. chicken
  • 5-6 drumsticks
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • ¼ teaspoon oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon marjoram
  • ¼ teaspoon rosemary, crushed
  • ¼ teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 cup orange juice
  1. Remove the chicken from the packaging, remove any giblets, and rinse under cold water – inside and out. Pat dry with paper towel and place chicken in a shallow baking dish.
  2. Combine garlic, oregano, marjoram, rosemary, basil, salt, and chili powder in a small bowl. Pour orange juice over the chicken and rub the herb mixture onto the whole chicken and extra chicken drumsticks, as well. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for 1-3 hours.
  3. When you are ready to roast your chicken, preheat oven to 375℉
  4. Place chicken breast side up on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Roast uncovered for 1¾ hours (about 20-25 minutes per pound).
  5. When the whole chicken is done, broil the marinated drumsticks (or your favorite additional chicken parts) for 25 minutes turning after the first 15 minutes.
