 Ingredients List

  • 1 Broiler-fryer chicken,
  • -3 to 3 1/2 pounds
  • 1 tb Sweet butter, room temp.
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1/2 ts Fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 c Pluse 2T crumbled Roquefort

chicken. Truss chicken. Place on rack in shallow baking pan. 2. Mix
cheese, cream, 5 tablespoons melted butter and the Cointreau. Brush chicken
lightly with some of the cheese mixture. Roast chicken, basting with cheese
mixture every 15 minutes, until juices run clear when inner thigh is
pierced and leg moves freely, about 1 hour 15 minutes. 3. Transfer chicken
to platter; remove trussing; keep warm. Heat remaining basting mixture in
small saucepan over medium heat; whisk in bits of beurre manie (to make
beurre manie: mix 1 T room temperature sweet butter with 1 T flour until
well combined) and simmer until sauce is as thick as you like it. Remove
from heat. Spoon over chicken; serve immediately.

NOTE: To evenly brown chicken, roast one third of the time with right side
up, and a third with left side up and a third with breast up.
