At least 8 hours before serving, place all ingredients in a steel or glass bowl or a pot that is large enough to hold chicken and liquid. Cover and refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight. When ready to cook, preheat oven to 400°.
Pour marinating mixture through a sieve. Discard liquid, and put solid remainder in chicken cavity.
Place chicken in a roasting pan and cook uncovered until an internal thermometer reads 160° and skin is golden and crisp, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Let chicken sit 10 minutes before carving.
Tip: Try pairing this entrée with sides inspired by its Asian roots: fluffy jasmine rice and sautéed bok choy.
