Scale

Ingredients

  • (1) 4-5 pound chicken
  • 1 large onion, roughly chopped
  • 4 carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1/4 cup hoisin
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Place the onions and carrots in the bottom of a large Dutch oven or roasting pot. Set the chicken on top of the vegetables.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the teriyaki sauce, hoisin, soy sauce, honey, garlic, red pepper flakes, sesame seeds and half of the chopped green onions. Evenly pour the sauce all over the chicken.
  3. Cover the chicken with a lid and roast for 1 hour, basting the chicken every 15-20 minutes with the sauce from the bottom of the pan. Reduce the heat to 400 degrees and roast the chicken un-covered for another 30 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chicken reads 165 degrees. Top with remaining sauce on the bottom of the pan and the remaining chopped green onion.
