Recipe Directions for Roast Chicken Marinated in Saffron, Orange and Garlic

  1. Marinade:

  2. 6 cups freshly squeezed orange juice

  3. 6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  4. Pinch saffron

  5. Bring ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan and reduce to 2 cups and let cool.

  6. Chicken:

  7. 1 chicken (4 to 5 pounds)

  8. Orange marinade

  9. 1 orange, quartered

  10. 4 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed

  11. 1 small onion, peeled and quartered

  12. Salt and coarsely ground pepper

  13. 1 cup white wine

  14. 1 cup orange juice

  15. 2 cups chicken stock

  16. 2 tablespoons unsalted cold butter

  17. 3 tablespoons finely chopped chives

  18. Place chicken in a large baking dish. Brush 1 cup of the marinade over the chicken and inside the cavity. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or up to 8 hours. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place the oranges, garlic and onions in the cavity and truss. Season well with salt and coarsely ground black pepper. Brush with more of the marinade. Place the chicken in a medium roasting pan and roast in the oven for 15 minutes. Turn the heat down to 375 degrees and continue roasting for 1 to 1 1/4 hours, basting with the marinade every 15 minutes. Remove the chicken to a cutting board and let rest 10 minutes. Degrease the pan and place the roasting dish with the drippings on top of 2 burners over high heat. Add the wine and orange juice and reduce by half. Add the chicken stock and reduce by half. Swirl in the butter and add the chives. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
