A delicious gluten-free dinner for the whole family!
2 ¼ lbs hormone-free chicken
1 tsp salt
¾ tsp fresh black pepper
3 strips smoked bacon
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Season chicken cavity with salt and pepper, then put in your favorite stuffing recipe. Truss the cavity closed. Season the bird with salt and pepper. Lay the bacon over the breast. Place the chicken on a metal roasting rack set inside a roasting pan on the middle rack of the oven.
2. Roast for 1 ½ hours, basting the legs once or twice with pan juices. Internal temperatures should be 140 degrees near the thigh.
3. Let your chicken rest 5 minutes before carving and make sure to remove bacon before carving.
