Roast Chicken with Stuffing!

            Crisp on the outside, moist & flavorful inside, bursting with stuffing! Old Time Sunday Dinner that is sure to please!

1, 5 to 7 LB Chicken, this one was 7 LB.
Salt to taste
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
STUFFING Recipe follows:

 1/2 Loaf of plain white bread cut into cubes to make 8 Cups. Precut bread cubes are fine I just like to do it myself!
1 Large Onion Chopped
3 Ribs of Celery Chopped
 4 Eggs
1/2 Cup Milk
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 TSP Parsley
1 TSP Ground Sage
1 TSP Savory ( if you can find it) if not just use poultry seasoning & leave out the sage
1 TSP Onion Powder
1 TSP Minced Garlic
 1/2 Stick of Butter ( may use margarine but why when there is butter)

Saute vegetables in the butter, I do this in a deep glass bowl & cooking covered in the microwave for 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the bread cubes & seasonings to the butter veggie mix.. Beat eggs with the milk & add all at once to the bread mixture. Now stuff into your chicken! IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO STUFF THE BIRD just butter a casserole dish & place stuffing mixture in the dish. Bake along with the chicken for the last hour of baking time!

Wash Chicken,  Place in a deep roasting pan that has a lid, stuff with the stuffing. Sprinkle with all of the seasonings using about 1/2 TSP of each one. I do not truss up my chicken I just wrap foil around the stuffing cavity & leg ends.  Roast in a 350 degree oven uncovered for 1 hour. Baste chicken & cover with the lid or seal with a foil tent. Roast 1 more hour, uncover & baste again, cover & roast 1/2  hour uncovering & basting then let uncovered for the final hour. Save juices from the pan when chicken is done & deglaze the pan & use all the liquid to make gravy!  This is MOIST , JUICY CHICKEN with delightful stuffing!
