  3. Rinse chicken well in cold water. Fold back wings.
  4. Mix the margarine and all spices in a small bowl. Mix well.
  5. Pat chicken dry. Then using your clean hands, rub this margarine paste all over inside and out of the whole chicken.
  6. Then stand it on the prongs of the roasting pan. If you don't have the upright one, you can lay it flat on a rack.
  7. Place in preheated oven. After 30 minutes, lower the temperature to 325 F for 55 minutes or until the meat thermometer reads 180 F degrees.

  9. To carve the chicken, remove all dark meat limbs first, legs, thighs and wings. Cutting the thighs in half. Then turn the chicken breasts over and remove all the inside breasts bones. This way you are able to cut the breasts in two large pieces. Now, you can cut the breasts easier in small perfect slices. This makes your roast look so much nicer on a platter and it goes a lot longer.
