    chef blade's Note:

    A regular chicken can't match the taste of a fresh hen. Very little fat here. Let this bird rest for 20 min. before quartering. Serve with the vegetables and buttermilk biscuits!

      DH and I love a good baked hen. I prepared this according to directions with the exception of adding creole seasoning to "kick it up a notch". I seasoned liberally inside and out with the creole seasoning. This makes a great "Sunday Dinner".
