Carol's baked chicken

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 \N Small 3 lb chicken (whole)
1 \N Large red or white potato
1 \N Medium onion
2 \N Carrots
1 \N Squash (Yellow or green)
\N \N Salt and pepper to taste

Ok, simple as it is, what to do if you are out of stuffing or time? Simple. Start oven at 400 degrees, and unwrap a defrosted chicken. Remove the gizzards and save for something else. Now chop up in large pieces, all those veggies. Got a big pot? Put these at the bottom ans put the chicken on top. If it doesnt all fit, put some of the veggies inside the chicken.

Best trick is lift chicken on a small metal rack or on a tuna/catfood can that has been emptied and washed out with holes poked at the top.

Optional: other veggies are fine. I use green beans, whole pea pods, and leeks at times.

Fat savings: Remove the skin and cover the pot. May desire to add a can of tomato soup or paste to prevent drying.

Serve with: Baking soda cheese bread and plump green and black olives. For dessert, consider something lite such as a delicate sugar free mocha coffee or apple cinnimon herbal tea.
