Glazed Roast Chicken Recipe
- 1 cup white wine or chicken broth
- 1 cup apricot preserves or quince jelly
- 1 tablespoon stone-ground mustard
- 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 to 4 pounds)
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a small saucepan, bring wine to a boil; cook 3-4 minutes or until wine is reduced by half. Stir in preserves and mustard. Reserve half of the glaze for basting.
- 2. Place chicken on a rack in a shallow roasting pan, breast side up. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Tuck wings under chicken; tie drumsticks together. Pour remaining glaze over chicken.
- 3. Roast 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours or until a thermometer inserted in thigh reads 180°, basting occasionally with reserved glaze after 45 minutes. Remove chicken from oven; tent with foil. Let stand 15 minutes before carving. Yield: 6 servings.
Reviews for Glazed Roast Chicken
"Followed recipe .... it was fabulous! Added carrots around chicken for the last hour. Very delicious with the apricot sauce!"
"Followed recipe ... it was absolutely delicious! Will definitely make again!"
"my 17 year old daughter and her boyfreind did this for dinner one night and it turned out great and i would not change a thing it was great"
"Followed the recipe except did not have stone ground mustard so used Dijon mustard. Baked to 170 removed and covered with foil (only took 1 hr 25 min). Skin was nice and golden and meat was so, so moist. Will definitely make again."
"What can you use instead of stone ground mustard? Don't have any."
"Delicious recipe! ThanksAll lazy people and people that don't like the ingredients should not review a recipe."
"REALLY GOOD! I just DO NOT understand people leaving low-star reviews when they DID NOT make the recipe!! I made it with cut chicken pieces and boneless breasts. It was good both ways."
"Hilly11 I recently found this great answer to your dilemma. Pour hydrogen peroxide in your pan and let it soak over night. Inthe morning it will clean up nicely."
"To eltonJ: boneless chicken is probably fine -- watch closely when roasting and basting.To Renice: then why did you comment?"
"I don't care for mustard or wine, so this recipe isn't for me. Also, I don't like having to baste!"
"Sounds really good but some of my family will not eat chicken on the bone...so do you think its ok to use boneless breast??"
"To hilly11, you can soak your broiler pan in hot soapy water and add baking soda to it and just let it soak. Works all the time."
"4 stars as I haven't actually made this yet, however it looks like an awesome recipe. Note that I too roast my chicken at 375 and its perfect. I can't wait to try this. I'm sure by tomorrow I will be thinking its a 5 star recipe."
"Cooking chicken 15 degrees above the recommend temp makes this less than a serious recipe."
"I used the apricot preserves, and it was delicious! However, **fair warning** please line your broiler pan with foil!!! I think I may have to actually throw my broiler pan away because there is an ungodly amount of junk caked to it!! I would make this recipe again!"
