Loosely stuff body cavity with bread mixture. Truss chicken if desired.
Place chicken in a Renyolds cooking bag and coat the bag very lightly with flour. (You may use a pan with a cover if you prefer but a bag provides the ultimate moist chicken!).
Place the bagged chicken on a glass or metal 13x9 shallow pan. Melt remaining butter; brush on chicken.
Use tie that comes with bag to seal bag.
