Serves: Approximately 4 to 6


1 whole chicken -or substitute-

Cornish game hen (per person)

2 green apples

2 bacon slices

1 teaspoon of salt

2 tablespoons of olive oil

You might also want to add (optional) chestnuts, walnuts, and raisins.


Remove everything from inside the chicken (no head, neck, wings,  organs, or the paper they come wrapped in) whilyou preheat the oven to 350 degrees for ten minutes. 

Peel & core the apples, slicing very thin & stuffing into the empty chicken cavityBrush the chicken with oil, as well as inside the roasting pan prior to placing the stuffed chicken inside. 

Top the chicken with two slices of bacon and sprinkle salt over all. Then bake at 350 degrees for one hour. 

Make sure it is thoroughly cooked, by cutting the thigh open with a sharp knife to see if the meat is pink inside. If so, cook a little longer, maybe 15 to 20 minutes more.
