  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Rinse chicken; pat dry with paper towels. Using fingers or end of wooden spoon, separate skin from meat on both sides of chicken, being careful to not tear the skin.
  • Brush bottom of chicken with 1/4 cup dressing. Tuck wings under chicken; place, breast-side up, on rack in roasting pan. Brush or pour 1/2 cup of the remaining dressing under the skin and on outside surface of chicken. Combine carrots, celery and remaining dressing; spoon into body cavity.
  • Bake 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 hours or until chicken is done (170°F). Let stand 10 min. before serving. Meanwhile, remove and discard vegetables from body cavity.

Note

Tucking the wings under the chicken prevents the tips from burning and helps balance the chicken better during cooking. And, brushing dressing under the skin helps keep the meat moist and add flavour, so you won't even miss the skin if you remove it before eating.

Cooking Know-How

The general rule for roasting 1 large chicken is to cook at 350ºF about 20 min. per pound. When cooking for a large crowd, consider making two smaller chickens instead of one large one. This will result in moister chicken breasts and will give you extra drumsticks. Do not double the cooking time for 1 chicken, simply increase it by 5 to 10 min. per pound.

Special Extra

Stuff chicken with your favourite flavour of Stove Top Stuffing. Simply prepare stuffing as directed on package, allowing 15 min. more cook time per pound.

    I was so impressed how good it tasted. I'm doing it again for my family. Thanks Kraft,

    The chicken was very nice and moist but I didn't feel that the flavour of the Sweet Onion dressing was significant.
