1/4 cup Honey

1 tablespoon Stone-Ground Mustard or Spicy Brown Mustard

1 teaspoon Ground Cumin

Procedure

1. Combine the lime juice, honey, mustard, and cumin in a roasting pan – whisk until homogenous

1. Place the chicken, breast side up, on a rack in the roasting pan

2. Make a small cut in the skin of the chicken, near the top – Use this as an entry point to loosen the skin around the entire chicken (use a similar technique on the  legs)

3. Use a basting tool to transfer some of the liquids from the bottom of the pan to the chicken (use the slit on top of the chicken to insert the basting tool under the skin.

4. Bake, uncovered, in a 350° oven and baste every 30 minutes

5. When the chicken has browned nicely ( ~1.5 hours ), cover it with foil to prevent drying during the remainder of the cooking process.

7. After removing from the over, allow the chicken to rest for ten minutes before removing and discarding the skin.

8. Carve the breast meat and expo with the wings, thighs, and legs
