  • Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Insert the onion inside the chicken cavity.
  3. Thoroughly mix the olive, salt, pepper, and thyme together. Evenly pour mixture over chicken.
  4. Roast chicken for 45 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in a saucepan stir in all ingredients of the glaze and bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir occasionally and reduce to ¾ of its original size and set aside.
  6. Halfway through the cook time, baste the chicken with the glaze and baste again at 40 minutes. Chicken should be a deep golden brown colour and cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F.
  7. Allow to rest a few minutes before carving.
Tips icon

Serve with orange slices and pomegranate for a decorative look – and squeeze orange over chicken for an added tangy taste!

If the chicken is browning too quickly, cover loosely with tin foil and remove for the last 10 to 15 minutes of cook time.
