For me in most cases, dinner is always based on sale items at the grocery store. This meal was no exception. Perdue Roasters were buy one get one FREE.Double Pac Stove top Stuffing was half price, & these items created a perfect menu idea. Had Cranberry sauce left from the holiday. Took the drippings from the roaster and made the gravy. Perdue Roasters can be very simple to make with this recipe. The perfect blend of herbs & spices, with the addition of garlic, lemon, orange, & apple wedges, stuffed in the cavity creates a perfectly roasted chicken. It is moist, tender, juicy & tasty
