Thai chicken in the oven with ginger, lemon and honey

This was absolutely delicious and the aroma divine. I was inspired by this recipe and changed a few things. (link)

For a whole organic chicken (about 1.5 kg)
1- In a mortar, grind five cloves of garlic, a generous amount of fresh ginger root, a few mint leaves and a generous handful of cilantro previously chopped. (All the ingredients I used were organic).
2- Place the chicken in a baking dish (you can leave it whole or cut it in pieces), and sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
3- Take the garlic and ginger mix adding a few drops of olive oil (or coconut oil) and using your hands spread it all over the chicken, under the skin and inside.
4- Place in the oven at 190º C. and bake. Turn the chicken every 15 minutes on each of its sides. This should take about 45 minutes to an hour.
5- Mix the juice of three limes with one generous tablespoon of honey. Mix well until all the honey is diluted. Pour on the chicken and let it bake another 15 minutes this time with the oven a little hotter, at 200 º C.

I served it with white basmati rice and hot green chilis on the side.
