Okay, so this girl made this recipe (without the dressing) with a whole chicken. I rapid roasted (450 1/2hr, then 400 1 1/2hrs) then reduced to 350 & basted with sauce. I just put olive oil on it at first & didn't do anything else, including the marinade part or even the cooking bag. Since it was a chicken, not a turkey, I halved the recipe. I forgot the sugar, but it wasn't in need of it. I subbed moscato for the plum wine. (A great suggestion from Manella was to sub plum jam & apple juice, which I didn't have.) I didn't get to taste this "fresh," but leftovers were pretty good. The sauce could definitely be spicier, but that's easily fixed. I subbed half t ground ginger for fresh just because I didn't want to "deal with" fresh. :o :D 'Had to make another half recipe sauce the next day. 'Didn't have the cranberry sauce & didn't blend it, just thickened. Added 1/4c more wine & 1T sugar to replace the sauce. Not "wow," but good.
