1 tsp

5 mL
½ cup
frozen peas, thawed
125 mL
¼ cup

Directions

Step 1
Preheat oven to 400˚F (200˚C). Mix 2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil, half of the garlic, oregano and 1½ tsp (7 mL) salt. Cut 1 lime in half, squeeze 2 tbsp (30 mL) lime juice from it and add to olive oil mixture, reserving lime halves. Rub oil mixture over chicken and inside cavity. Insert lime halves inside cavity.
Step 2
Tie chicken legs together with kitchen twine. Place chicken, breast-side up, in roasting pan.
Step 3
Roast in lower third of oven 60 min., or until meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of the inner thigh registers 185°F (85°C). Transfer chicken to serving platter or cutting board and tent with foil 10 min. before removing twine and slicing.
Step 4
Meanwhile, add cauliflower to food processor and pulse until rice-sized pieces form. Remove 1 tsp (5 mL) finely grated zest from remaining lime, set aside. Heat remaining olive oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add cauliflower "couscous", remaining garlic, turmeric and remaining salt. Cover and cook 2 to 3 min., or until cauliflower softens. Stir in reserved lime zest, peas and parsley.
Step 5
Slice chicken and serve with cauliflower "couscous".
