1 roaster chicken - about 3lbs
1 apple a la Becker Farms
some apple cider a la Becker Farms
Gut and clean the chicken (and gross out the family). I use a little olive oil on the skin. Pour some Apple cider over the chicken. crush salt, pepper, rosemary and spread over chicken. Cut an apple and place pieces in the gut and on the legs (i only used about half the apple). Let sit in the fridge for a bit.
Cooking time - about 2 hrs at 350 (or so).
When ready to cook - get a roasting pan. put the chicken in and add a bit more cider to the bottom of the pan. Cook for about 1 hour
BASTE THE CHICKEN! thats the secret
After hour, get the fatty bits out of the juice and baste the bird one more time. Add in potatoes and carrots to the pot. Sprinkle with more salt, pepper, all spice and rosemary.
Cook for about another hour or until veggies are cooked and chicken is at least 165 degrees.
Good luck taking the chicken out - mine fell apart
Eat and Enjoy!
