Prepare whole chicken, wash dry. Dab excess water with kitchen towel. Gash the chicken at a few places especially the thicker parts so that the marinate will seep in and will grill to perfection. Marinate with seasonings, ginger garlic, chilli relishes, spices, sugar, lemon juice.
Cover, chill in refrigerator for 25-30 minutes.
Preheat oven 180 degrees . Using a roasting pan, with foil place the chicken pieces in preheated oven. Place 1 lemon cut into halves, few whole garlic in skin, tucked for flavourings. Brush the chicken with honey basting. Switch timer for 35 minutes, turning the chicken for another 10 minutes to cook well, until clear juices run. Lower oven heat to 140 degrees
Preparation of " Pour in sauce" On stove top, in a small sauce pan, combine all ingredients and slowly simmer on low heat avoid burning. Keep aside.
Remove the roasting pan, carefully take each piece dip into the prepared sauce and place back onto the tray, complete all. Return the chicken roasting pan back to oven for another 10 minutes until the skin of chicken starts to crackle golden brown and the honey glaze and sauce giving it a darker shade, skin becoming crisper... If you want a smoked BBQ chicken, place charcoal lit in a bowl, drizzle butter, cover with a piece of foil, this will give the grill chicken the smoked BBQ finish. Serve this immediately, capturing the moment of the BBQ, smoke and flavorings.
A huge bowl of green salad, bean/potatoe or pasta salad, bread rolls or potatoe bakes completes this dish.
