  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter one 8x8x2 inch glass baking dish and set aside.
  2. Cover roasting rack with aluminum foil and place in roasting pan. Place crown roast, bone ends up, on foil lined rack. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour.
  3. Prepare the stuffing by melting 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and onion; cook until sausage is crumbled and fully cooked. Remove from heat. Stir in bread crumbs, chestnuts, chicken broth, parsley, sage, thyme, salt and pepper. Mix well.
