I must say the chicken was amazing. It fell right off the bones. The stuffing did not turn out so great though. I suggest removing all the fat and probably the skin and perhaps use a little less liquid. My stuffing turned out the consistancy of soup and it was greasy. I followed the recipe to a 't'. I plan on trying it again with my suggestions and I will get back to you.

This is wonderful. I can honestly say this is the only way I will ever roast a chicken again. The chicken I had was 4lbs, and it cooked in the 10 hours. The stuffing I used was a sage and onion stuffing so I never used the sage asked for. The texture is smooth and the meat is not greasy. We loved it!

This chicken was amazing. Moist and flavorful. I used a 7 1/2 pound chicken, cooked on low and the pop up timer was up in 6 1/2 hours. I continued cooking on low for another 1 1/2 hours. I used a little olive oil in place of the butter for the rub on the chicken. The dressing turned out too wet to eat. Next time I make the recipe, I will omit the dressing.
