  • ½ cup raisins

  • 1 tablespoon chopped peanuts

  • ½ cup honey

  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard

  • cup maple syrup

  • ¼ cup butter

  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 (3 pound) whole chicken


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. In a medium saucepan over low heat combine the raisins, peanuts, honey, mustard, syrup and butter; stir all together until a medium thick glaze has formed, then leave on burner to cook slowly. Stir occasionally to keep from burning.

  3. Bake hen at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for about 1 hour or until bird is cooked through and juices run clear. Baste hen thoroughly with prepared glaze every 10 to 15 minutes while baking; when hen is cooked through and ready to serve, garnish with orange zest.
