Orange Roast Chicken


Orange Roast Chicken

The sweetness of the orange combines well with the heat from the red pepper flakes for great flavor.  This is just so simple to prepare and you could do this with any citrus not just oranges.

Ingredients:

1 Whole chicken

1 Orange

2 Pinches of red pepper flakes

Salt and pepper

Directions:

Loosen the skin from the breast of the chicken.  Cut two slices from the middle of the orange and slide one under the skin of each breast.  Squeeze the juice from the orange over the chicken.  Put the squeezed orange inside the cavity of the chicken.  Season the inside and outside of the chicken with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle 1 pinch of red pepper flakes over the breast of the chicken and the other pinch goes into the cavity of the chicken.  Roast in a 350 oven for 60-70 minutes or until your oven thermometer shows you have reached the correct temperature.  Let the chicken rest before carving.
