The mild flavor of the plums will concentrate during roasting, while plenty of garlic and rosemary keep the dish from tasting too sweet.



Preheat the oven to 425° F.

Drizzle chicken with oil and sprinkle with orange zest, coriander, salt and pepper. Stuff the cavity with the halved orange a few sprigs of rosemary.

Place chicken breast side up in a roasting pan or a large ovenproof skillet. Roast for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° F and roast for an additional 20 minutes, basting occasionally with pan juices.

Meanwhile, toss together plums, shallots, garlic, honey, stock or wine and a few more rosemary sprigs. Arrange plum mixture around chicken. Roast, basting occasionally with pan juices, until the internal temperature of the chicken taken with an instant-read thermometer reaches 165° F, an additional 20 to 30 minutes. Allow to rest 10 minutes before carving.
