3 lb chicken
4 each sprigs fresh thyme
2 each garlic cloves, sliced thin
1 cup honey
1 cup dark or regular soy sauce
1 cup lime juice
3 teaspoon light brown sugar
1 salt and pepper

Prepare the grill. Season the inside of the chicken with salt and pepper. Place the thyme and garlic under the skin on the breast. Combine the honey, soy, lime juice, and brown sugar, stirring until the sugar is thoroughly dissolved.

Place the chicken on the spit and brush with the glaze every few minutes until the glaze starts to stick to the chicken. Continue to roast until chicken is done, about l l/2 hours. Remove the chicken from the spit and let rest for l0 minutes before carving. If a spit is not available, just roast the chicken in the oven on a rack with a cup of water in the roasting pan.

The chicken juices, marinade and water will mix to make a wonderful glaze to baste the chicken with aobut every 5-l0 minutes. Roast at 325~F for l l/2 hours.
