This week Winn Dixie made it easy and thrifty by offering $1 a pound roasters. These babies are not your ordinary roast chickens but the 6 lb. roasting beauties that will feed a crowd. It takes only a few minutes to prepare. Then just pop into the oven, and a few hours later, you've got one dinner that will put smiles on each member of your family's faces.
1-1/4 cups hot water
4 Tbsp. margarine or butter, cut up
1 pkg. (6 oz.) STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix for Chicken
1 roasting chicken or capon (5-6 lb.)
1/4 tsp. dried thyme leaves or dried tarragon leaves
1 teaspoon each salt, seasoned salt, garlic salt

Mix hot water and margarine in large bowl until margarine is melted. Add stuffing mix; stir just until moistened. Set aside. (Do not stuff chicken until ready to bake.)
