What You Need

1
 roasting chicken (6 lb.)
1
bottle  (8 oz.) KRAFT Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing, divided
1
lb.  carrots, cut into chunks
4
stalks  celery, cut into chunks

Make It

HEAT oven to 350°F.

USE fingers or end of wooden spoon to separate skin from meat on both sides of chicken, being careful not to tear the skin.

BRUSH bottom of chicken with 1/4 cup dressing. Tuck wings under chicken; place, breast-side up, on rack in roasting pan. Brush or pour 1/2 cup of the remaining dressing under the skin and on outside surface of chicken. Combine carrots, celery and remaining dressing; spoon into chicken cavity.

BAKE 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until chicken is done (165°F). Let stand 10 min. before serving. Meanwhile, remove and discard vegetables from chicken cavity.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Serve this flavorful chicken with a crisp, mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Dressing and warm, whole wheat rolls.
Cooking Know-How
Tucking the wings under the chicken prevents the tips from burning and helps balance the chicken better during cooking.
Cooking Know-How
The general rule for roasting a chicken is to bake the chicken at 350°F for 20 min. per pound. When testing for doneness, insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of one of the thighs, being careful to not let the thermometer touch the bone.
