    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8

    Yield:

    roasted ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Wash, dry, and oil your chicken.
    3. 3
      Place on rack in a shallow open roasting pan. Rub the skin with salt and pepper, rubbed sage, and fresh ground rosemary. Place onion, apple, thyme, coffee, garlic, and sage leaves into cavity.
    4. 4
      Cover the top and sides of the bird with clean white cheasecloth which has been moistened with oil. Place the pan in preheated oven. Do not add water [just the coffee] or cover the pan!
    5. 5
      Baste the chicken from time to time with the pan drippings.
    6. 6
      Roast for 30-45 minutes per pound, depending on chicken size, allowing longer per pound for a smaller chicken than for a larger one.
    7. 7
      About 3/4 through the cooking time, turn the bird breast side up and finish cooking. The chicken is done when the thigh meat is soft when pinched.
    8. 8
      Do NOT pierce the skin with a fork as this allows all the wondermous juices to escape.
    9. 9
      Remove chicken to a heated platter and serve.
    10. 10
      If you do not have access to the oil cloth, loosely cover the bird for the first 3/4 of cooking, turn, and remove cover for the remainder of baking time to allow browning.
