I made this last night and it was pretty good, so I thought I'd share. The flavours aren't overpoweringly strong, so if you want a really orangey chicken you'll need to increase the amounts!
First crush two cloves of garlic (you don't need to peel them) and place them along with a sprig of rosemary and half an orange into the cavity of the chicken.

For the marinade:
Approx. 3 tbsp olive oil
Good pinch salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2-3 sprigs fresh rosemary (leaves stripped)
1 tsp dried sage
Zest and juice of half an orange

Mix all of the above together, giving the rosemary a good mash around to flavour the oil. Rub it all over the chicken, place the chicken in a roasting tray and put in a preheated oven at 230oC for 15 minutes, then reduce to 180oC for approx. an hour and 15 mins (obviously depends on the size of your chicken!)

Really simple but really good  Smiley



(sorry about the chunk out of the side of the chicken - I just couldn't wait!)

Sounds good. I wonder if that maranade would work for a recipe I have where you crisp the skin in a skillet first before roasting it in the oven. My worry would be the sugars in the orange would burn.

That sounds fantastic!  I will have to try this next time I have a chicken to roast.

I think it would probably be fine - I had the temperature pretty high to start with to make sure the skin was crispy, and there was no sign of it burning. I think you could probably give it a go Smiley

I just made one of those roaster hens in my crock pot the other day - the meat was juicy and oh so tender. God I love my slow cooker...
