Citrus-Spiced Roast Chicken Recipe

I am the designated Thanksgiving host in my family because of my chipotle citrus roast turkey. Even finicky eaters love it. That's why I use the same recipe for chicken, so we can enjoy it year-round. —Robin Haas, Cranston, Rhode Island

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Mix marmalade, chipotle peppers, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt and cumin. With fingers, carefully loosen skin from chicken; rub mixture under the skin.
  2. Place chicken on a rack in a shallow roasting pan, breast side up. Tuck wings under chicken; tie drumsticks together. Rub skin with remaining salt.
  3. Roast 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until a thermometer inserted in thigh reads 180°. Baste occasionally with pan drippings. (Cover loosely with foil if chicken browns too quickly.)
  4. Remove chicken from oven; tent with foil. Let stand 15 minutes before carving. Remove and discard skin before serving. If desired, skim fat and thicken pan drippings for gravy. Serve with chicken. Yield: 6 servings.
