I love this recipe. It is truly a standby of mine and one I like to make often. It's the perfect amount of food for a dinner party for 4. It's a wonderful dish for entertaining not only because it is basic enough to please most palettes, but once you place it in the oven you have about an hour and a half to tidy the house, take a shower, set the table, and enjoy the delicious smell that will fill your home.
The only change I make to the recipe is to place the chicken (after it's been stuffed) on a bed of red potatoes, mushrooms, and organic carrots (they taste way better than conventional plus they have the pretty tips for presentation). While the chicken roasts, the juices flow onto the vegetables and cook them in the most delicious way. Oh, and I love to roast in cast iron pans. You can find them here.
p.s. even if you don't make the gravy, it will still be a delicious meal.
