"This was so juicy and wonderful and left overs made wonderful sandwiches. The only thing I chaned was the savory since I did not have any in stock. I used Mortons seasoning blend. I let it cook an extra 15 miutes because my bird was 4 pounds."

"When you're rushed for time or just tired, this is a very tasty super easy way to roast a chicken. Thanks, Connie! Who said great-tasting recipes need a lot of time? You can thicken the pan drippings for a good gravy."
