DIRECTIONS

  • To make the stuffing: melt the butter in a skillet over low heat. Add the onion and mushrooms, cooking until the onion is soft. Remove from heat; stir in the crumbs and season to taste.
  • Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Stuff the body cavity, and truss the bird.
  • Brush the melted butter all over and sprinkle with seasonings.
  • Place the chicken breast up in a roasting pan and cook at 325 degrees for 25 minutes per pound. The meat thermometer should read 170 degrees in the breast meat.
  • If desired you can melt more butter and baste every 15 minutes. (I don't baste my chicken; I just leave it alone.).
  • Remove the chicken to a warm platter and cover with foil, letting it rest 10 minutes before carving.
