Mix things up with these new flavors and techniques.Roast chicken with sourdough stuffing1 thick slice rustic sourdough bread, cut into 3/4-inch cubes (2 cups)2 tablespoons unsalted butter1 onion, finely chopped2 cloves garlic, finely chopped1 stalk celery, diced small1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves or 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme1/2 to 2/3 cup chicken brothSalt and pepper1 chicken (about 5 pounds)1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Bake bread in a single layer until dry, about 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl. In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and celery, and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add thyme, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir into bread, then stir in enough broth to make mixture evenly moist but not wet. Season with salt and pepper.2. Pat chicken dry. Season inside and out with salt and pepper. Stuff cavity, tie legs together and tuck wings underneath. Roast chicken until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of the thigh registers 165 degrees, about 1 hour (tent the exposed stuffing with foil if it's overbrowning). Let rest 10 minutes before serving.Stuffing and tying1. Stuff the bird: Fill the cavity with stuffing, but don't pack it in tightly.2. Tie the legs: Use kitchen twine to tie the legs together; a bow is easy to untie when the bird is done.Nutritional information per serving: 572 calories, 16 grams fat (6 grams saturated fat), 86 grams protein, 16 grams carbohydrates, 1 gram fiber, 25 percent of calories from fat.Coconut-lime chicken with Thai garnishesChicken parts are quick to cook and simple to serve -- no carving required.
