Grapefruit and Sumac Roast Chicken

The grapefruits this season have been unbelievable! Every single one I've had has been the perfect mix of sweet and tart and they've inspired me to cook with them. This chicken takes advantage of two complimentary flavors- red grapefruit and sumac. If you've never cooked with sumac, you need to start! It has a unique tart, tangy, citrusy flavor that adds so much to dishes and pairs perfectly with grapefruit. The key is to marinate this chicken for at least 24 hours before roasting it to get the most flavor out of the marinade. Though usually you wouldn't want to marinate chicken with such a large acid component for a long time, with a whole chicken the skin and bones protect it. You want to marinate this chicken in a snug pyrex or container so the marinade stays put with the chicken and flip it over at least once over the 24 hours. If you are a citrus fan you're going to love this chicken! Enjoy!
