I do all this the night before so that it is ready when I get home from work. A whole chicken flavored with fresh orange slices, then baked with potatoes, carrots, onions, and celery.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Slide orange slices under chicken skin (skin will pull up easily). Place chicken in a 9x13 inch baking dish skin-side-up. Then place potatoes, carrots, onions and celery around the chicken and pour broth over all. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). (Note: If water decreases as it is cooking, add as needed; this will be your gravy.)

Tastes great, but cooking time needs to be adjusted. Cooked it for an hour and middle wasnt even touched...it was still very raw.

I would have marinated the chicken in orange juice and spices first. The orange slice just wasn't quite enough.

Remarkably easy to make and extremely tasty. I tried this as a last minute, something a little different from the usual recipe. The whole house smelled great. We couldn't wait to eat! It took longer than the 1 hour stated on recipe but i just watched the pop-up timer. The pan juice and drippings made the best gravy I have made yet. You can't go wrong with this one.
