Category: Tomatoes, Poultry, Meat

 Ingredients List

  • 12 Sun-dried tomatoes; no oil
  • 1 ts Chopped fresh sage
  • 1 ts Fresh rosemary leaves;
  • -crumbled
  • 1/2 ts Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Whole fryer chicken; (3-lb)
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 2 ts Olive oil
  • 2 Garlic heads

 Directions

GARLIC: Separate the cloves and peel each clove.

In a small saucepan over high heat, combine 2 cups of water with the
tomatoes and bring to a boil; boil for 5 minutes.

With a slotted spoon, remove the tomatoes, finely chop and set aside. Boil
the tomato liquid for about 10 minutes, until reduced to 1/4 cup. Set
aside.

In a small bowl, combine the tomatoes, sage, rosemary and pepper. Using
your fingers, gently lift the chicken skin away from the flesh of the
breasts and legs; try not to tear the skin.

Stuff the tomato mixture under the loosened skin. Sprinkle the chicken
cavity with salt.

Tie the legs together using kitchen string.

In a large, heavy nonstick saucepan or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over
medium-high heat. Add the chicken, breast-side down.

Scatter the garlic cloves over and around the chicken. Reduce the heat to
medium-low and cook, covered, for 20 minutes.

Turn the chicken over and cook, covered, 30 Minutes more, until the chicken
registers 165 degrees on a meat thermometer and the juices run clear when a
thigh is pierced with a knife.

Remove the chicken to a serving platter.

Add the reserved tomato water to the pan and cook, stirring constantly,
over high heat for 2 minutes, until thick and slightly syrupy.

Spoon the sauce and garlic cloves over the chicken and serve. Serves 4.

Notes: The intense flavor of sun-dried tomatoes permeates this roasted
chicken. When roasted, garlic is sweet and mild. Chicken is roasted on the
stove top. MC PER SERVING - 520 cals, 37g fat
