Serves 2, prep time 20 minutes, cooking time 1 1/2 hours

INGREDIENTS
1 medium chicken
Juice of four limes
Zest of two limes
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cayenne pepper 
2 tsp of allspice
1 tbsp of grated ginger
Handful of thyme leaves
1 tsp of sugar

1 tbsp of honey
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
Pinch of salt

FOR THE DRESSING
6 tbsp plain yoghurt 
4 tbsp chopped fresh mint (keeping some to serve)
salt & pepper

METHOD
TO PREPARE THE CHICKEN
Wash and dry the chicken then place on a chopping board. Using a sharp knife or meat scissors cut down each side of the backbone to the parson’s nose. Turn the bird over and press down hard to flatten. Transfer to a roasting tray breast side up and prick the bird all over with a fork.

FOR THE MARINADE
Pour in the lime juice into a jug add the zest, spices, thyme leaves, grated ginger, sugar, honey and ketchup. Mix and season, pour the marinade over the bird; cover and chill for at least one hour or overnight.

FOR THE MINT YOGHURT
Pour the yoghurt into a small dish, add the chopped mint and season. Chill while you cook the bird.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and place the bird in the oven, cook for 45 minutes, baste when necessary. Once cooked remove from the oven. Place on a serving tray and pour over the now thickened marinade from the tray. Squeeze over some lime, add the remainder of the chopped mint and serve with the mint yoghurt.GMS_THE_MENU_RETURN
