"'Gedempte' is Yiddish for 'well-cooked.' This is a baked onion chicken recipe from my great grandmother. It basically falls off the bone. The onions become very brown and tender during cooking."

I had such high hopes for this recipe. Sadly it didn't measure up to the wonderful aroma it produced. Difficult to plate and the chicken itself didn't have much taste. The sauce which I made into a gravy was good. As a whole, it was just OK for us. Thanks for the recipe - I am glad I tried it, but probably won't make it again.
This was pretty good. I added potatoes to the roaster and some extra spices. I didn't need to add any liquid or baste. I used a whole fryer chicken and it was perfect at about 4.5 hours.
