3 TBSP plus 1 TBSP olive oil
4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
2 TBSP freshly grated ginger
1 medium lime, zested and quartered
salt & pepper
1 whole chicken (5 to 6 pounds)
2 pounds sweet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 1-inch pieces


1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.

2. In a small bowl mix together the 3 TBSP oil, garlic, ginger, lime zest, and 2 tsp salt. Discard the giblets from the chicken cavity. Rinse the chicken under cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Rub the the ginger mixture all over the chicken and under the skin. Stuff the lime quarters into the chicken cavity then lay the chicken breast side up in the center of a rimmed baking sheet.

4. Reduce the oven temperature to 375°F and roast for 30 more minutes. Stir the potatoes and roast for 30 to 45 more minutes or until the chicken has an internal temperature of 160°F and potatoes begin to caramelize.

5. Transfer chicken to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes before carving.
