Roasted Chicken and Potatoes

Rated as 4.69 out of 5 Stars

"My mom's tender roasted chicken with potatoes and sage dressing is even more delicious than its aroma while baking. My children enjoy this meal as much as I did when I was young. --Sandra Melnychenko, Grandview, Manitoba"

  1. In a skillet, saute celery and onion in butter until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the poultry seasoning and sage. Place the bread cubes in a large bowl. Stir in celery mixture and chicken broth; mix lightly. Just before baking, stuff the chicken. Place on a rack in a roasting pan; tie the drumsticks together. Combine paprika, salt and pepper; rub over chicken. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 1-1/2 hours, basting every 30 minutes. Place the potatoes around chicken; cover and bake 1-1/2 hours longer or until potatoes are tender and a meat thermometer reads 180 degrees F-185 degrees F. Sprinkle with parsley. Reserve pan drippings and thicken for gravy if desired.

I loved the flavor of the chicken and the potatoes. I skipped the stuffing and just went with the potatoes. I had to add a can of chicken broth to the bottom of the pan because the juice was jus...
