How to Make Smoky Ginger-Scallion Chicken
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Finely chop 4 scallions. Mix together chopped scallions, ginger, garlic, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, and pepper flakes in small bowl. Slip your fingers under skin of chicken over breast, thighs, and legs to loosen skin. Rub scallion mixture into meat under skin. Tuck wings under; tie legs together with kitchen string.
- Place chicken in roasting pan. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes until internal temperature reaches 180 degrees.
