Preparation
STEP 1

Combine all the ingredients except chicken in a blender or food processor and blend until completely smooth. Spoon marinade over chicken, spreading under the skin and inside the bird. Cover and refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight.

STEP 2

Heat oven to 425˚F. Place chicken on a rack in an oven-safe pan. Roast for 20 minutes.

STEP 3

Reduce oven temperature to 375˚F and roast for another hour, or until chicken is cooked to an internal temperature of 165˚F and nicely browned.

STEP 4

Remove from oven, cover loosely with foil and let rest 10-15 minutes before carving.
