This was great! I put a mixture of lime juice, crushed garlic, salt and pepper and a couple teaspoons of curry under the skin and inside the chicken. Also put the leftover lime skins in the cavity, which really helps to keep it moist. I used yam, potato, carrot, mushroom, apple, and a bit of asparagus. Tossed the veg in olive oil, salt, and pepper and roasted at 400 degrees in a separate pan as suggested by another reviewer. It was getting late, so I popped the chicken in at 400, not long after the veggies. When the chicken reached about 140 degrees, I took both pans out of the oven. I put some sauce on the veggies, put the chicken on top of the veggies (breast down, but I think I would flip it to breast up next time), and coated everything with the rest of the sauce. I turned the heat down to 350, and cooked the bird and veggies until the chicken reached 180 degrees. I let it sit for 10 minutes and carved it. I was able to serve the veggies right out of the pan I cooked them in. My kids ate every bit of moist, flavorful meat on a 4-pound bird. I put the carcass, leftover veg, and sauce into a pot of water for soup. I'm betting it will be great broth for a Mulligatawny soup. With the 400-degree roasting, both the chicken and veg were perfect, and done in less time than I expected.
