Original recipe yields 1 chicken



  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, rum, and brown sugar; set aside. Mix together the cayenne pepper, clove, cinnamon, ginger, pepper, salt, and thyme leaves. Brush the chicken with oil, then coat with the spice mixture.
  3. Place in a roasting pan, and bake about 90 minutes, until the juices run clear or until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest part of the thigh reaches 180 degrees F. Baste the chicken with the sauce every 20 minutes while it's cooking. Allow chicken to rest for 10 minutes before carving.

This recipe was so good that my dad said he wanted me to make it again, twice in a week! That's very rare in my family especially since we always eat the same things (chicken, pasta, etc.) I made some changed to the recipe though. I didn't have lime juice or rum so i used lemon juice and tequila. I also put on the spices the night before and put it into the fridge so it could "marinate" sorta. and I put the spices underneath the skin (i did this by pulling some of the skin from the breast and put the spices under there and rubbed) so the taste would be amazing! Before i even into the oven, i put even more of the same spices on! I basted it for the time it said then i turned the temperature up to 450 so the skin could be crispy. BOY! this was delicious! I've made it two times and my family LOVES it!!! I think it would be great with cooked carrots with a touch of lemon on them and some white rice. yumm!! Thanks for the recipe.



I have never written a review before for a recipe, but this chicken was so good, I had to say WOW and thanks for sharing. I followed the "roasting chicken 101" instructions to prep the chicken before cooking. My family, who gets tired of chicken because we eat it so much couldn't get enough. Thanks again!

I used this recipe on game hens instead of a chicken and it turned out great! The hens were so moist and the flavor of the spices was wonderful. I stuffed the hens with lime wedges and cilantro which I highly recommend.
