Directions

1. Preheat your oven to 460°F  (240°C).

2. Rinse the capon with cold water, pat dry, and transfer in a roasting pan.

3. Coarsely crush the cloves, one cinnamon stick, salt, pepper and combine with ginger and butter in a small bowl. Massage the capon the 2/3 of the butter mixture and spread it under the skin.

4. Stuff the capon with white onion, red onion, unpeeled garlic cloves, 1 cinnamon stick, fresh thyme (if using), and remaining 1/3 of the butter mixture.

5. Arrange the orange slices around the chicken in the roasting pan.

6. Season with salt and pepper, pour the chicken broth in the bottom of the pan, and roast for 4 hours. Reduce temperature to 300°F (150°C) after 30 minutes. Turn the fowl upside-down at half cooking. Baste regularly with cooking juices. Meat should fall off the bone easily at the end of cooking. Serve with white rice and enjoy.
