stuffing; place remaining stuffing in casserole dish and set aside. Fold
neck skin over stuffing and skewer to back. Lift wings and twist under
back. Place, breast side up, on rack in roasting pan.

In small saucepan, heat together honey, fat and salt over low heat until
fat is melted, stirring to blend well. Brush about 1/3 cup all over chicken

all but 1 tbsp of the remaining honey mixture.
