  2. In a small saucepan combine ingredients for the glaze and cook over medium heat for about 5-7 minutes to let the flavors infuse. Set aside.

  3. Pat chicken dry and season the chicken all over with salt, shaker, and olive oil. Make sure to use your hands to gently loosen the breast skin and season the meat under the skin as well as inside the cavity.

  4. Stuff the cavity with onion, orange, thyme, and rosemary. Place chicken in a Dutch oven or roasting rack breast side up. And cook at 450 F uncovered for 20 minutes to obtain color on the skin.
