BASIC ROAST CHICKEN
Sometimes there is nothing else that will fill the bill like roasted chicken. Here’s the easiest way to do it. You can brush the surface with melted butter, margarine or oil, but it isn’t really necessary.
1 whole chicken
1 teaspoon salt or to taste
1 package (7-1/2-ounces) stuffing mix, prepared as directed on package
Sprinkle cavity of chicken with salt. Stuff with favorite prepared stuffing. Or skip stuffing if you’re really in a hurry. Place chicken in baking pan (no rack needed).
