A delicious gluten-free dinner for the whole family!

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.
