  • 3 1/2 lb. (1.6 kg) whole chicken
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 3 limes
  • 1 or 2 stalks celery, cut into chunks
  • 1/4 c. chopped parsley or coriander (cilantro)


  1. Rinse chicken and dry well. Loosen skin; rub seasonings inside the cavity and under skin of chicken. Squeeze juice of one lime over chicken. Marinate for 1 hour at room temperature or cover and marinate in the fridge overnight. Pierce limes with a fork. Place limes, celery and parsley inside the chicken. Close up openings with metal skewers. Place chicken on its side in a roasting pan.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Roast uncovered for 20 minutes. Turn chicken onto its other side and roast 20 minutes more. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and roast breast side up 20 minutes longer, until golden and crisp. Remove chicken from oven. Strain fat from pan juices. Place pan juices in a gravy boat. Cut up chicken; remove skin, limes, celery and parsley. Garnish with additional lime slices.
