    3KillerBs's Note:

    Moist, tender chicken in a flavorful combination of tomatoes and herbs. Don't be intimidated by the long directions, they're detailed for beginners, but this tastes good enough for an expert to enjoy. Alternately, you can make this in a crockpot.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Unpackage and prep a roasting chicken or stew hen (take off the plastic, remove the giblets and neck from inside (save for stock), look over the skin and pluck any feathers with a washed pair of needle nose pliers, singe off any pinfeathers with a grill lighter, drain excess liquid from the cavity).
    2. 2
      Set it into a small roaster or dutch oven that has a secure lid.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle half the Italian seasoning and half the garlic slivers over the chicken.
    4. 4
      Put the other half of the seasonings into the cavity.
    5. 5
      Put half the tomatoes into the cavity and pour half over the chicken.
    6. 6
      Cover and roast at 300 for 2-3 hours or at 250 for 3 hours. You can remove the lid for the last half hour or so to get better browning.
    7. 7
      The meat will be very tender -- falling off the bones (a stew hen may have more integrity depending on how tough it started before you tenderized it with the moist heat).
    8. 8
      Suggestion -- Serve over pasta and pass parmesan at the table.
    9. 9
      Suggestion -- Complete the meal with grilled zucchini, breaded and fried zucchini, or flat, Italian beans that have been steamed or microwaved and some crusty, Italian bread.

      I have made this recipe a second time and am now convinced that I produced the results the recipe intended - a lightly browned bird with very moist meat flavored by the garlic, tomatoes and italian seasoning. Palates wishing for stronger flavors may adjust the seasonings and possibly add the suggested red pepper. Those wishing lighter/natural flavors can proceed as directed with this simple, easy to follow recipe.
