  Rum 2 Ounce
  Brown sugar 1 Tablespoon
  Cayenne pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground clove 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground cinnamon 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground ginger 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Dried thyme leaves 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Whole chicken 3 Pound

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, rum, and brown sugar; set aside. Mix together the cayenne pepper, clove, cinnamon, ginger, pepper, salt, and thyme leaves. Brush the chicken with oil, then coat with the spice mixture.
Place in a roasting pan, and bake about 90 minutes, until the juices run clear or until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest part of the thigh reaches 180 degrees F. Baste the chicken with the sauce every 20 minutes while it's cooking. Allow chicken to rest for 10 minutes before carving.
