Max's Roasted Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by foodtvfan

My neighbor gave me this recipe around 1962. It originated from Max, the owner of the former Chicken Roost Restaurant in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Double the sauce recipe for large quantities of chicken. It has a wonderful aroma while baking. If you don't have homemade or canned chicken stock, use a tablespoon of chicken soup base mix dissolved in 1 cup hot water.

This chicken is extremely mild in flavor which is not a bad thing if you don't like a lot of spices. I didn't do the celery/onion bottom and used b/s chicken breast. Definitely not BBQ chicken, but tasted good none-the-less. Made for PRMR.
