This is a twist on orange chicken and is a favorite of my family. You can use chicken pieces or even a turkey.

Yield:
1 roast chicken

Ingredients

  • 1 (3 pound) whole chicken, rinsed and patted dry

  • 1 grapefruit, cut in half

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • ½ teaspoon seasoned salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Place chicken into a roasting pan, and squeeze the juice from the grapefruit halves all over and inside the chicken. Drizzle chicken with olive oil, and sprinkle with seasoned salt. Cover with aluminum foil.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven, covered, for 45 minutes; remove foil, and bake until meat is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 15 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone should read 180 degrees F (82 degrees C). Remove the chicken from the oven, cover with a doubled sheet of aluminum foil, and allow to rest in a warm area for 10 minutes before slicing.
