celery, cut into 3 pieces
margarine, cut into pieces
1 2/3 tablespoons
Came out great!! I put bread stuffing inside instead and used butter instead of margarine. It was delicious. Husband loved it.
I made this for dinner tonight using chicken leg quarters, left out potatoes and carrots, but the chicken was so tender and juicy, fell right off the bone.
This was very good. The chicken was succulent and flavorful. I do agree with another reviewer that the amount of garlic should be cut. Also, I think there was way too much margarine; it made everything overly greasy. I suggest not using the margarine in the inside and, perhaps even cutting the other 1/4 cup to less and dotting the chicken skin with it so that it browns more (my chicken skin did not brown and crisp as much as I would have liked). The "stuffing" was messy once the chicken was sliced so next time I'll use quartered onion and halved lemon.
The chicken was very tender and juicy. I felt like there was a bit too much garlic. I recommend not putting it on the outside of the bird. Otherwise a nice warm meal on a cold night.
Nearly 2 hours for a 4.5 lb chicken? Depending on your oven that might be a bit long. I'd check it at 1 hour,20 minutes. Other than that, this is a great recipe.
This was good. I used 3 tablespoons of butter in total, instead of the margarine.
It turned out great! Low on supplies so I improvised.". I added a few slices of chopped apple to vary the taste and used baby carrots, chopped small red potatoes and a half onion and no lemon. I used another AR recipe to coat the chicken with (lemon herb). Tasted awesome! Also seemed with sweet potato fries. Not bad for my maiden voyage into making a whole chicken :-)
So good and easy too. Will definitely make again. Pretty enough for guests, and makes the kitchen smell yummy.
