  • 4 1/2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 1/2 tbsp packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp minced peeled fresh gingerroot
  • 1 1/2 tsp hot chili paste
  • 4 1/2- to 5-lb chicken
  • vegetable such ascurried squash


  1. Make marinade: In a large bowl stir together marinade ingredients.
  2. Rinse chicken inside and out and pat dry completely. Remove excess fat from chicken and prick skin all over with a fork so that seasonings can penetrate. Add chicken to marinade and rub inside and out to coat. Marinate chicken, covered and chilled, at least 4 hours and up to 1 day. (The longer chicken marinates, the more flavor it will have.)
  3. Preheat oven to 425° F. and line a roasting pan with heavy-duty foil.
  4. In roasting pan arrange chicken, breast side down, and pour marinade over it. Roast chicken in middle of oven 30 minutes. Turn chicken breast side up and baste with pan juices. Roast chicken, basting occasionally, 40 minutes more, or until cooked through, skin is golden brown, and a meat thermometer inserted in fleshy part of thigh registers 180° F. Let chicken stand, loosely covered, 10 minutes before carving. Skim fat from pan juices and transfer to sauceboat.
  5. Serve chicken with pan juices, rice, and vegetable.
