MethodStuffing: In skillet, heat sesame and vegetable oils over medium heat; fry mushrooms, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, about 5 minutes.
Add green onions and ginger; fry for 2 minutes. Stir in soy sauce and vinegar; scrape into bowl and let cool.
With fingers, loosen chicken skin along curved side to form pocket; spread mushroom mixture under skin. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours; add 5 minutes to roasting time.)
Place chicken, skin side up, on foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Brush with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in 400°F (200°C) oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden and no longer pink inside. Broil, watching carefully to avoid scorching, until deep golden brown, about 2 minutes.
