Garnish with additional fresh lime wedges and fresh thyme sprigs.
Keeping it Safe
The easiest way to ensure that cooked meat or poultry is done is to check the internal temperature. Using an accurate food thermometer will take away the guesswork. Simply insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the meat or poultry, avoiding any bones if present. For whole poultry, insert the thermometer into the thickest part of one of the thighs, again taking care to avoid any bones.
Substitute fresh rosemary for the thyme.
Make cleanup a snap by lining the roasting pan with parchment before using as directed.
