Delicious roasted potatoes, and chicken stuffed with onion, garlic, and apple. Easy on the calories and fat if the skin is not eaten (would have 9 grams fat and 375 calories per serving without the skin).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 375.
  2. Place apple, onion, and garlic in chicken's body cavity.
  3. Tie if desired.
  4. Place chicken, breast side up, on the rack in a shallow roasting pan.
  5. Place potatoes on rack around chicken.
  6. Mix remaining ingredients and brush over chicken and potatoes.
  7. Roast uncovered 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes, basting chicken with the margarine mixture every half hour.
  8. Chicken will be done when juices run clear, and potatoes should be fork tender.
  9. Let stand 10 minutes, remove and discard the apple, onion, and garlic, and chicken skin.

A wonderful recipe very tasty I used tablespoon measures instead of teaspoon as i wanted more marinade.

I was looking for a recipe for just roasting a chicken so did not add the potatoes (will do so another time). The margarine mixture is wonderful. We had a fairly large fryer so used all of the basting sauce. Also baked longer ( 350° 2 1/2 hours). Chicken was so tender but crispy on the outside. Perfect! The apple, onion and garlic sure added to the flavor! Thanks, ChipotleChick, for a delicious recipe! M.Joan
